Great Western Railway: Pensions Referendum

21 March 2016

Thank you to all of those TSSA members who voted in our recent Referendum, we are only as strong as our members and so it is important that you actively participate and have your say in all that we do on your behalf.


Outcome of the Referendum

We asked members to vote in an online referendum on whether they accepted Great Western Railways proposals on pensions as outlined in circulars 46 (published on 17 February) and 52 (published on 4 March 2016) – both circulars can be accessed online at

The outcome of the referendum was that 90% of those who participated voted to accept the offer. I have therefore written to the company to advise them of the outcome so that this can be considered within the pension’s consultation which closes today.

Please remember that to continue to have a strong voice in the workforce we need as many of your colleagues to be a member of a trade union, your colleagues can join TSSA online at
