Update on Freightliner Management Pay Dispute, 48 Hour Suspension of Industrial Action

20 October 2011

The company has contacted us Wednesday afternoon, requesting a further meeting to discuss the Management Pay Dispute in order to seek some form of agreement going forward.

 They have also requested that we agree to suspend our Industrial Action, planned to commence next Monday in order to facilitate a meeting first thing on 24th October with your TSSA reps.

As both parties are unable to meet until then due to diary commitments we have agreed to that request and have suspended the commencement of any action for a period of 48 hours pending further discussion with a view to reaching a resolution to this dispute.

We have a clear message that any compromise must not allow the differentials in pay between grades to be eroded any further and that we may consider a multi-year deal that takes this into account.

We would like to thank you for your continued support and we will inform as soon as possible as to the position with this dispute next Monday.
