RMT Disgust At DLR Carlisle Refusal To Honour Pay Agreement

We note the report from our Regional Organiser and the correspondence from our Docklands Light Railway branch. We share their disgust that Carlisle management is openly reneging on its letter to us of 6 August 2013 by refusing to honour its promised timetable for the incremental increase in pay rates to the level of the London Living Wage (LLW), and refusing to award any pay rise to those members who are currently paid the LLW rate or above.

We instruct the General Secretary to immediately commence a ballot of our members on this contract for strike action and action short of strikes, to close on 10 January 2014. A personal letter is to be sent to all members being balloted strongly urging them to vote Yes to both questions.

We refer to the Council of Executives meeting on 18 December our recommendation that Dispute Fund payments are made to these members.

London Transport Regional Council and branches to be advised. Docklands Light Railway branch and our representatives on this contract are to be advised by personal letter.
