GWR: Vacant Company Council seat for TSSA

7 December 2016

TSSA is calling on members to stand for 1 vacant Company council seat covering the old FGW constituency. Any non-Management colleague who works in an area outside of the old Wessex or Thames trains constituencies is eligible to stand but we have no current representation for HQ Clerical grades and want to encourage someone from this group to stand forward to represent their TSSA colleagues. There are also vacancies HQ Clerical members to stand as local representatives and for ANY grade to become a Union learning or Health & Safety representative.

Company council seat

 

It is really important that we fill all of our seats at Company council to ensure that all of our members are represented, we currently have representatives from Stations grades and revenue protection sitting on this body which is why we are specifically asking HQ Clerical/Admin graded members to consider standing forward particularly as GWR haven’t set up a divisional council to represent your grade. However, members from other groups outside of the management and exec grades are welcome to stand for nomination as long as you are in a role that TSSA has collective bargaining for and work location that was within the old FGW constituencies a TSSA member, have worked for GWR for more than 6 months and are willing to abide by TSSA Rules and policies.

 

You would be expected to be an advocate for all TSSA members in the constituency at Company council meetings, be involved in negotiations, consultations, individual representation of members, recruitment of non-members into the TSSA and providing support to other representatives where appropriate. GWR will give you paid release to attend training and perform your duties and TSSA will provide you with training and support from other representatives and the Full time officer to ensure you can carry out your role.

 

If interested, you should complete the attached nomination form by 12 noon on Monday 16 January 2017. GWR will give you paid release to attend training and perform your duties and TSSA will provide you with training and support from other representatives and the Full time officer to ensure you can carry out your role.

 

We also have vacancies for management graded members as health and safety representatives and Union learning positions which any grade can stand for if interested in finding out more please email Alan Valentine by clicking here

 

Local HQ Clerical representatives

 

We have been concerned for some time that there is very little formal representation for HQ Clerical grades especially due to the lack of a divisional council that represents the grade. With the company moving forward on changes to the grade carrying out exercises like time and motion studies without agreement or consultation it is vital that we have a local representative in each workplace to represent your group. If you are a HQ Clerical grade and recognise the importance of representing your TSSA colleagues locally then consider completing a nomination form for the role by clicking on the below link or please email Alan Valentine by clicking here
