First North Western 2002 Pay Dispute Update - Strike Date Reinstated

 

In their session of 12 December 2002, the Executive Committee considered urgent correspondence, including a resolution from Edge Hill Branch, and a report from the General Secretary, in respect of First North Western - Strike Dates.

The Executive Committee determined that the strike date scheduled for Saturday 21 to Sunday 22 December 2002 be reinstated.

Strike dates have therefore been rescheduled for;

00.01 hours on Saturday 21 December 2002 to 23.59 hours on Sunday 22 December 2002.

00.01 hours on Tuesday 31 December 2002 to 23.59 hours on Wednesday 1 January 2003.

00.01 hours on Sunday 2 February 2003 to 23.59 hours on Monday 3 February 2003.

On Wednesday 11 December, ASLEF negotiators made contact with First North Western management with a view to determining both parties’ availability for further discussions. 

It is hoped that FNW will now address the outstanding areas of concern and produce substantive proposals to allow a negotiated settlement to be reached.

Members will be kept informed as this matter is progressed.

 

EC Resolution 969/418

‘That the report be noted and the General Secretary be instructed to inform First North Western that our members will withdraw their labour on 21st December from 00.01 until 23.59 on the 22nd December 2002 in line with the request from Edge Hill Branch. 

All statutory regulations be applied.’
