RATES OF PAY AND CONDITIONS OF SERVICE 2014 – ALSTOM METRO TRAINS
‘That we note the revised offer by the Company after a meeting took place with our negotiating team on 16th October 2014.
The offer has been greatly improved and meets the aspirations of our members. Therefore, the General Secretary is instructed to inform the Company of our acceptance of the offer and that we are no longer in dispute with them.
Our members are to be applauded for their willingness to fight against the previous appalling offers from the Company and demand a just pay award.
IMPROVING PAY & CONDITIONS – CARLISLE CLEANING & SECURITY (DOCKLANDS LIGHT RAILWAY) (DLR/10/1)
