Rates Of Pay & Conditions Of Service 2011 – Initial (LU Contract)
From RMT General Secretary Bob Crow
I write further to my letter dated 19th July 2012 in which I informed you of the result of the ballot regarding the above matter.
You and your colleagues are all congratulated for returning a very strong YES vote for industrial action and proving your determination to fight for better pay and conditions. Management must also be clear on the fact that they cannot just ignore the impact the Olympics games will have on your working life.
The General Grades Committee has met to discuss the way forward and has taken the decision to call on members to take strike action at the times set out below:
All members are instructed not to book on for any shifts that commence between 05:30 hours on Friday 27th July 2012 and 05:29 hours on Sunday 29th July 2012.
We have informed the company of this decision and of the fact that your union remains available for talks to resolve this dispute.
We must show the company that their refusal to make a satisfactory pay offer or an offer to reward you for extra work during the Olympics is not acceptable. I urge you and your colleagues to stand strong and stand together, unity is strength.
