Volker Rail: Pay 2011

20 June 2011

Your TSSA representatives met recently with your employer to discuss this year's pay award. We are disappointed that once again Volker Rail are not prepared to offer any pay enhancements whatsoever.

Your TSSA representatives met recently with your employer to discuss this year’s pay award.

We are very disappointed to report that once again Volker Rail are not prepared to offer any pay enhancement whatsoever. Not only will this be the second year running that you have not been offered an increase to your basic pay award, but it will also be the second year that you have not received any performance related bonus.]

Without at least a cost of living increase you are once again been asked to sit back and watch as your standards of living slip.

The best the company can offer is to acknowledge that pay will have to be addressed next year. All we can say is that it will have to be a very substantial pay increase in 2012 to make up for the short comings of 2010 and 2011.

Zero Pay – No Way!


Your employer wrote to you at the end of 2010 informing you that there would be no pay rise for 2011. This letter was well in advance of any pay submissions from any of the Trade Unions. This attitude, married to the fact that again you are been told to simply accept that there will be no pay increase and again been told that you will not get a bonus shows how the bosses must feel towards rewarding our hard working members at Volker Rail.

Your representatives feel it is unacceptable to expect you and your colleagues to go another 12 months without a basic increase to your pay. Your representatives need to know if you share these feelings.

Have your say on your pay

Please complete the form you are given and hand to your local rep or return to the TSSA using the freepost facility overleaf no later than last post 24th of June 2011.
