RMT advice regarding FFTF contracts

To RMT Members

It has been brought to my attention that some RMT members in Station grades have been sent letters that involve some sort of offer / and or contract to sign under Fit For the future stations. We have been in discussion with management over this matter for some time, and we were waiting for the company to come back to us.

Additionally I have taken legal advice from RMTs lawyers on the matter of contracts under FFFS.

The clear and final position on contracts has not been established . Therefore hearing that the letters have gone out I can assure you that I am writing to the company at my level and seeking an urgent meeting to address this matter. It is not right, and it is not what we agreed, for any contracts to have been sent out at this stage.

Accordingly my advice to RMT members is DO NOT SIGN ANY CONTRACT /AGREEMENT, on this specific matter of FFFS until further notice. I will be putting a further statement out to update all members effected early next week.
