Comms re-org: No compulsory redundancies

Our Union has secured agreement from Network Rail that everyone displaced by the recent Comms reorganisation will not be at risk of compulsory redundancy.

Following last minute talks between your Reps and the Company, we have been successful in achieving a result that delivers genuine job security for our members.

We accept the need for the Company to evolve its structures to meet the needs of the business, and NR accept that no-one should be forced out of a job as a result.

We are proud to represent our members in the face of changes in the industry. And our Union will always act to protect jobs.

Working from Home Policy

Not consulted and not fit for purpose

TSSA has been discussing Future Ways of Working since Spring 2020 on an informal basis. We have been asking on numerous occasions for a National Framework to support Future Ways of Working. Network Rail agreed to engage with the National Management Council on any proposed changes. Paula Hayes stated that "we will properly engage when there is something fit for purpose". 

Nevertheless, Network Rail recently published the Working from Home Policy without formal consultation and agreement with the Trade Unions. Meanwhile, over 2000 TSSA members have now responded to our Future Ways of Working survey.

The TSSA Collective Bargaining Agreement is there to ensures your voice is heard. Network Rail have decided not to listen. Therefore, we will be notifying them of our intention to register a Failure to Agree on this matter.

With the many changes and challenges to how the future of our industry will look and feel, now more than ever members and their colleagues will need the support and strength that TSSA can and will provide. We urge all members to look to their colleagues and if they are not already members, tell them to join now.
