TSSA rail

Issue No. 1675

AT THE best attended meeting ever, TSSA white collar rail maintenance workers at GTRM trains voted in favour of a call for a ballot to take industrial action. The dispute is about pay differentials with blue collar staff. Over the previous year wages grade staff have struck repeatedly to improve their conditions. Now many wages staff have higher basic rates of pay than their supervisors.

Management have also threatened to take away bonuses paid to some supervisors in lieu of restructuring. It was clear from the meeting that nobody would give up their bonus without a struggle.
