TSSA to ballot all members in c2c

Close up of a strike ballot paper with an x in the yes box.

Look out for a strike ballot paper coming through your door and please VOTE YES in this important dispute over your pay and job security!
Your reps met and discussed the best way forward for you at C2C. Despite submitting a pay claim months ago, despite giving the company the best opportunities to resolve this dispute, make a reasonable pay offer and give the assurances we seek, your company claims it has been unable to do so. Your reps now agree, it is time to take action.
We have served notice to C2C to ballot for industrial action including strike action and action short of strike after their inability to meet our requests.
We are seeking:

  • A pay rise which meets the rising cost of living
  • A no compulsory redundancy agreement for 2022
  • No unagreed changes to terms and conditions

What happens now?
You will receive a ballot paper to the home address that TSSA holds on our membership system for you.
Ballot opens: Wednesday 20th June
Ballot closes: Wednesday 6th July at 1200 (noon)
We’re urging you to VOTE YES in this ballot, but the most important thing is that you vote. Please look out for your ballot paper and ensure you return it before the closing date of Wednesday 6th July.
C2C have not made sufficient offers on your pay or job security. This leaves us with no option other than to ballot for industrial action.
We don’t take this lightly and of course industrial action of any sort is always a last resort.
Please VOTE YES to both strike action and action short of strike in this ballot to send the strongest possible message to C2C that we won’t stand for this treatment.
If you have any concerns, please contact your TSSA reps in the first instance. You can contact our Helpdesk on 0800 328 2673 or
