Significant gains made in Fleet dispute

We note the report from our Lead Officer following the reps meeting yesterday, and we congratulate our Fleet members, representatives and the Lead Officer on the effective actions short of a strike and negotiations with the company which have led to significant gains being made in this dispute.

In light of these gains we instruct the General Secretary that we remain in dispute but to suspend all actions short of a strike to enable resolution talks at the appropriate level to continue.
