Transplant pay parity dispute strike dates


Further to my previous Circular (IR/277/18, 20th June 2018), this matter has been considered again by the National Executive Committee, which has taken the decision to call further strike action and instruct all Materials Manager, Storeman, Storeman Team Leader, Technical Manager and Train Maintainer (Train Maintenance) members NOT TO BOOK ON for any shifts that commence between:-

  • 07:00 hours on Thursday 12th July to 07:00 hours on Friday 13th July 2018
  • 19:00 hours on Friday 13th July to 07:00 hours Saturday 14th July 2018
  • 07:00 hours Sunday 15th July to 19:00 hours on Sunday 15th July 2018

NB: To comply with legal advice the overtime ban is suspended for the duration of each strike but will commence again immediately after each strike ends and continuously from 19:01 hours on Sunday 15th July 2018.

The Company has been advised of the above and that we remain available for talks aimed at resolving this dispute. I will keep Branches advised of all further developments.

What is a National Executive Committee decision?

This article is an 'executive decision' which has been written by the RMT National Executive Committee. The National Executive is the union's governing body in between AGMs. Its decisions set out what the union will do on a particular issue.

These decisions can often be brief, and may be one of several passed over a period of time. To get a better understanding or find out more information about what the RMT is doing, speak to your rep or attend your branch or Regional Council meeting.
