Signallers’ and Operational Staff pay
Reject Network Rail’s insult!
FOR A 35 HOUR WEEK NOW!
FOR A 1 YEAR DEAL!
FOR A FAIR PAY RISE!
At a national meeting of our area reps on Wednesday 21 June a large majority voted to reject this latest deal. That is now the agreed position of the union nationally. There is no reason for any signal worker or operational staff member to accept this deal.
We applaud the firm stand taken by the leadership of the RMT and TSSA to defend our pensions in difficult circumstances. We are trying to force the same concessions out of over 100 companies for decades to come, in a climate where the pension benefits of working-class people are being disastrously eroded by employers and government alike.
A two-sided leaflet explaining how and why the employers always try to make workers pay for shorter working hours by attacking our pay and conditions - and what we can do about it.
