After giving consideration to reports submitted by the District Organiser and Company Council, the ASLEF Executive Committee rejected London Midlandís request to extend the Rest Day Working Agreement.
The Company Council reported that the existing training agreement, relating to additional Trent Valley services has come to conclusion and they have yet to reach agreement with London Midland regarding the introduction of Class 172 DMUs. (A meeting had been arranged for the 22nd of December to discuss Class 172 training, but was then postponed by LM at short notice).
If LM are serious about wanting an extension to rest day working, further discussions will need to take place on the following issues: Class 172 introduction, depot establishments, establishment calculators and the utilisation of rest day working.
