Senior staff at Freightliner Intermodal want a fair increase in pay and improvements to their terms an conditions
RMT members at Freightliner Intermodal are today balloting for strike action and action short of a strike in a fight for a fair increase in rates of pay and improvements to conditions of service.
The union says that an offer made by the company to management grade staff was less than that offered to all other grades and does not represent a fair reward for the duties and responsibilities of this particular group of members.
General Secretary Bob Crow said: “”As a result of Freightliner Intermodal’s failure to meet our members’ aspirations and commit to dealing with excess unpaid overtime, the matter has been subject to consideration by RMT’s executive and we have decided that we have no option but to ballot for action.
“The company’s current offer to our management grade members would mean a further deterioration in pay differentials in relation to non management grades and that is wholly unacceptable.
“The ballot will begin today and RMT remains available for further talks with the company to tackle the issues at the heart of this dispute.”
