VolkerRail: INDUSTRIAL ACTION

25 October 2011

As a result of VolkerRailÂ’s continuing refusal to make a pay offer for 2011 we have today served notice that TSSA members will be taking industrial action.

 

As a result of VolkerRail’s continuing refusal to make a pay offer for 2011 we have today served notice that TSSA members will be taking industrial action.

As a union we have not taken this decision lightly and the door, as always, is open for VolkerRail to continue negotiations and make us an acceptable offer.

Times & Dates

The initial industrial action will be two fold consisting of both strike action and action short of strike.

Strike action will be discontinuous and will take place on the dates set out below and on such further dates as will be notified to you in due course.

The first strike will be from 00:01 on the 2nd of November 2011 to 06:00 on the 2nd of November 2011 followed by strike action from 00:01 on the 24th of December 2011 to midnight on the 27th of December 2011 and again from 00:01 on the 31st of December 2011 to midnight on the 2nd of January 2012.

Action short of strike will be continuous and will commence from 00:01 on the 2nd of November 2011.

Action short of a strike will be a work to rule and withdrawal of good will. In practice this will mean that

· Members will only work their basic contracted or basic rostered hours (as applicable).

· Members who are not provided with a VolkerRail email address and/or a VolkerRail laptop or PC will not accept communications to personal emails.

· Members provided with a works telephone will only be contactable during their recognised hours of work.

 

Unity is Strength

For this action to be affective your union is calling on you to take part in the action detailed above. By sticking together we can show that as a union we are strong. We are also encouraging members to speak to their colleagues about the dispute and to get them to join TSSA. Anyone who joins TSSA will be eligible to take part in the action. Since this dispute began we have increased our membership at VolkerRail by 10%. If we can continue to build on this our voice can only get stronger.

TSSA YOUR UNION – YOUR VOICE at VOLKERRAIL.
