SOUTH WEST TRAINS (GUARDS OPTION)
Further to my letter dated 22nd September regarding the above, the referendum has now concluded with the following result:-
Total Votes Cast... 412
Those Voting Option One... 289
Those Voting Option Two... 110
Those Voting Neither Option... 13
Spoilt Papers... 0
This result has now been considered by the General Grades Committee who have taken the following decision:-
“We note the outcome of the referendum ballot and instruct the General Secretary to inform the Company of our acceptance of Option 1. Relevant Branches and Regional Councils to be informed.”
I will inform the Company of our acceptance of the basic pay award option and ask that this is implemented at the earliest opportunity.
I would also like to thank members for voting in this referendum and to thank your representatives for their efforts in this matter.
