Thanks to everyone who took part in our online survey!

Hundreds of you helped to produce our claim for improvements to pay and conditions, available below. Our reps will use this as the basis for negotiations with Amey ahead of the 1 March pay anniversary.

Claim Summary

With effect from the pay anniversary date (1 March 2019) TSSA is seeking a substantial increase in the basic rates of pay and all allowances that will lead to a material improvement in the standard of living of our members, including addressing any problems of low pay within the organisation.

Survey results again identified job security and pay increases linked to inflation as key priorities while members have given our negotiating team flexibility to negotiate a single or multiple year deal.

  • A no compulsory redundancy agreement in place for the duration of the deal
  • Fair Pay: a comprehensive analysis of pay systems, grading structures and the operation of recruitment and selection
  • A negotiated policy covering all aspects of home working, including an agreed homeworking allowance
  • Resolution to the issue of graduates working within the rail business being excluded from collective bargaining, in breach of our agreements
  • Progress on the agreement to collectively negotiate all terms and conditions for all roles, ceasing the issuing of personal contracts
  • A reduction in the working week to a maximum of 35 hours in a 5-day week
  • A review of flexible working and family friendly policies, with a view to improving maternity, paternity, adoption and family leave arrangements and making access to flexible working open to all
  • A negotiated procedure agreement for equalities, diversity and inclusion
  • We would consider a single or multi-year deal but all terms to be for the duration, i.e. a two year pay deal could only be considered acceptable if a no compulsory redundancies agreement was also for two years.

What's next?

Negotiations will begin on 6 February when our reps will formally present the claim to the company. Look out for updates as negotiations progress.

Any offer will be considered by TSSA reps before being shared with members, with a recommendation to accept or reject if appropriate. As a democratic, member-led trade union, members will ultimately determine whether a deal is accepted or what action to take in order to seek improvements to pay and conditions.
