FOR THE ATTENTION OF ALL GUARDS MEMBERS
Reduction in Working Hours for Guards
The current situation regarding Guards hours is somewhat frustrating.
This year began positively enough with a meeting taking place on 7th January where we discussed the principles of moving towards a 35 hour week.
We created two small sub groups to look at finance and changes to working arrangements which would assist in achieving the reduction in hours without commitment. We believed this would lead to the Guards considering an offer on reduction of hours by the autumn, indeed the management agreed we should have a timetable to being able to bring the matter back to Company Council for consideration by May.
Using every best effort to encourage SWT to progress this matter we have faced a series of cancelled meetings and a number of reasons for not continuing the talks to achieve this goal.
We have a full Company Council meeting this month and we will push for these discussions to restart. The success of our progress will ultimately be, in your hands. Should the progress continue to be delayed, ignored or sidelined we will consult with you, our members on the best way forward.
