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.
