RMT announcement to ballot FGW members

Thursday 10th October 2013
It is disappointing that RMT is once again playing with their members’ livelihoods by asking them to take strike action when discussions to resolve these issues have not yet run their course through the usual processes. We provided written responses and proposed solutions months ago to many of the issues raised, which are without foundation, and we have yet to receive any reply from the RMT.

Threats such as this risk giving the impression that RMT is more interested in playing political games than having sensible, constructive conversations about resolving these issues for their members and our colleagues. We look forward to hearing whether RMT will respond and take up our open offer to discuss these issues.
