RMT advice regarding FFTF contracts

To RMT Members

It has been brought to my attention that some RMT members in Station grades have been sent letters that involve some sort of offer / and or contract to sign under Fit For the future stations. We have been in discussion with management over this matter for some time, and we were waiting for the company to come back to us.

Additionally I have taken legal advice from RMTs lawyers on the matter of contracts under FFFS.
