UPDATE: Trains Manager Framework

Yesterday (6th February 2020), your reps met with management to receive the outcome of a Director’s Review we had 15 months ago about the introduction of a Framework of Agreement for Trains Managers.

Unfortunately the outcome said that Trains Managers will not be allowed to work 12 hour shifts on weekends, despite many other grades including the Senior Operating Official, Service Managers and many other MATS grades staff working 12 hour shifts.

This leaves us in the situation where we still do not have a Framework of Agreement for our Trains Managers. We will be visiting depots in the coming weeks to discuss potential roster changes and of course are happy to discuss the Framework. However, please contact your rep if you have any concerns or feedback.

We will hopefully be meeting again with management in the near future to discuss the next steps
