Railcare Wolverton and Springburn in administration

1 August 2013

The TSSA has grave concerns regarding the recent announcement of administration after failed approaches to the Government for financial assistance from Railcare.

At the time of writing it appears that the proposed TUPE transfer of the business to Knor Bremse has broken down.

It is vital that members should be aware that if the administrators do not find another party to take over the existing business and its existing liabilities that there could be significant implications for members.

The TSSA has little information to give members at the time of writing, however do check our website over the coming days as any information updates received will be added. TSSA have a contact in place at Wolverton and would be appreciative if staff at Springburn could contact Tony Wheeler on in order to set up an effective communication chain.

In the meantime The TSSA’s General Secretary Manuel Cortes has pledged unwavering support to the members at Railcare and we are currently seeking a meeting with the administrators in order to ensure that our members will be protected and, not least of all, paid for the previous months work.

We shall be doing all that we can to support our members through this difficult process.
