Discipline prompts ballot at NXEA

13 March 2009

ASLEF is balloting for industrial action in NX East Anglia. The vote has been provoked by the company applying ‘draconian’ discipline, and the union insists that there is an ‘almost total breakdown in industrial relations’.

 

District Organiser Andy Morrison says a concerted attack is being made on ASLEF members through the disciplinary procedures and by an ‘inconsistent and heavy-handed’ use of the Competence Development Process (CDP). ‘There is almost a culture of mistrust in the company,’ Andy says. ‘Management also seems to be cutting back on time off for union representatives when the number of members they represent has increased and the area they cover has widened.’

 

The ballot result is due to be announced on 9 April.
