ASLEF Circular

17 August 2005



TO: All Branches and Representatives -

Arriva Trains Northern and First North Western



Fellow Members,



Further to Head Office Circular 585/2003, I have been advised that Arriva Trains Northern and First North Western are intending to send out letters to drivers with forms giving them options to move depots to transfer to the new company, prior to reaching a negotiated settlement with ASLEF.


No member should sign any agreement or complete any form until your representatives have reached a negotiated settlement on this issue.


I have, today, informed the Managing Directors of First North Western and Arriva Trains Northern that if they send out these forms before reaching an agreement with us on this issue, we will ballot our members for industrial action.


Please bring the contents of this circular to the attention of your members.


Yours fraternally



Shaun Brady

General Secretary
