Tram referendum after action threat

06 May 2010

ASLEF’s London organiser Steve Grant says threatened industrial action by members on Croydon Trams has been suspended and a revised offer is being put to members in a referendum.

The offer consists of a 2% salary increase from 4 November last year, the abolition of the lower first-year rate for new-entrant drivers and a £350 payment in lieu of the benefit of the half-hour reduction in working week.

It also includes an increase of RPI plus 0.5% (or £525 whichever is the greater) from 4 November this year, the removal of the lower holiday entitlement for new-entrant drivers, a reduction from a 38 to a 37.5 hours working week and the equivalent of three days additional annual holiday.

Finally the offer incorporates an increase of RPI plus 0.5% (or £440 whichever is the greater) from 4 November 2011 and a reduction from a 37.5 to a 37 hours working week.
