After a series of meetings and having listened to a range of different submissions from the TSSA, MTR has reached its full and final position on pay for the period 1st April 2022 to 31st March 2023.
The offer from the business to settle our claim for improvements to pay and working conditions has been met with the following offer:
The business is looking to do a deal for one year only and seeks to award you an increase equivalent to the February RPI figure or 2% whichever is the greater. For your information the January RPI figure was, I believe 7.3%.
In addition to this, the TSSA has sought a “No compulsory redundancy agreement” with MTR for the same period ending 31st March 2023. We wish to seek extensions to this arrangement in time, as we firmly believe that no modern forward-thinking business should be unable to anticipate and manage any staffing issues, without compelling someone to leave against their will.
In conclusion, all existing agreements will be honoured and will not be affected by this award. TSSA is able to commend this offer to you with a recommendation for acceptance. Unless we hear contrary arguments from you, our members, it is our intention to accept this offer on your behalf.
TSSA Organiser Tony Wheeler said "I would deeply encourage you to contact me directly with any views, concerns, or questions. Please email me. I would be happy to hear from you."
Tony added, "On another note, we still have no TSSA members currently, who volunteer to work with me as a rep. It really would help us deliver a much better service for our members. The vacancy sadly leaves the impression that we do not have issues as TSSA members when I know this is not the case.
"I would be delighted to hear from any of our members who might feel that they would be able to liaise with me and work for the general betterment of MTR as a business, and our TSSA members."
