Strike date set at Network Rail

15 May 2015

The strike action will be discontinuous and will take place on the dates set out below.

Following our successful ballot for industrial action and action short of strike, TSSA members within Bands 5-8 and equivalent and Controller Grades are now instructed by the General Secretary to participate in industrial action acting with the authority of the ballot that closed on 15 May 2015.

Thanks to those of you who helped ensure the majority of our members participated in the ballot giving us a resounding mandate with a 52% turnout.

Details of action to be taken

The strike action will be discontinuous and will take place on the dates set out below:

Members who would otherwise book on for any shift between 17:00 hours on 25 May 2015 until 16:59 hours on 26 May 2015 will be instructed not to do so.

The industrial action short of strike will be discontinuous and will take place on the dates set out below:

Members will be instructed to take action short of strike from 00:01 hours on 25 May 2015 until 23:59 hours on 26 May 2015. Members will be called upon not to work any overtime, additional hours, extended shifts or undertake any callouts between 00:01 hours on 25 May 2015 until 23:59 hours on 26 May 2015.

On this basis industrial action will also take place on 27 May 2015 in respect of any shifts that commence prior to 16:59 on 26 May 2015 and run into 27 May 2015 and any overtime, additional hours, extended shifts or callouts that commence prior to 23:59 on 26 May 2015 and would run into 27 May 2015.

Further talks

As a result of the overwhelming outcome of the ballot and planned industrial action served upon Network Rail, TSSA has now been invited to attend talks under the auspices of ACAS on Monday 18 May. Your national representatives will be meeting prior to this.

The planned action will go ahead subject to the outcome of talks held.

We will keep members informed of any developments. Further guidance will be issued relating to industrial action. In the meantime, please direct any queries to your Reps or the Members’ Helpdesk.
