    General Secretary Mick Lynch said: “Our members have spoken in huge numbers to accept this unconditional pay offer and no compulsory redundancies until the end of 2024.

    "I want to congratulate them on their steadfastness in this long industrial campaign.

    “We will be negotiating further with the train operators over reforms they want to see. And we will never shy away from vigorously defending our members terms and conditions, now or in the future.

    “This campaign shows that sustained strike action and unity gets results and our members should be proud of the role they have played in securing this deal.”

    Don't worry folks whatever pay rise they think they've achieved.
    It's the public who will pick up the bill. With increased prices.

    As in any business

    And customers pick up the bill for the large dividends the train companies pay to their foreign owners and for the waste in the system.

    Don't forget unions invest massive amounts of money in these
    companies and are serious shareholders. They invest in order to pay
    pensions to their members . So don't criticise the shares because a lot
    of you are one yourself.

    Unions don't pay pensions to members only to staff like any other company.

    Go look at where the dividends go.

  14. ausard2 says:01/12/2023 01:43 AM
    Dividends go to shareholders and in the main pension funds.
    Dividends is a nice word. Reality is , it's a return on your money
    ( interest) .

    He has managed to negotiate a deal that his Union members have voted to accept. That is success, not like the cobbled together Brexit fiasco that no one voted for. Perhaps we can make him a Lord and put him in the next Labour government.

    Unions don't pay pensions to their members. The members pensions are provided by the Railway Pension Scheme. Unions do not and have not invested in Train Operating Companies.

    You mean one who would just roll over and let the train companies do what they want and treat the staff like dirt?

    A company irrespective, runs its business as they see fit
    Been there got tee shirt etc
    Bottom line I've put numbers on the table, and that's what's
    available . A close friend back in the 90 's . Made an offer , head
    of the workers ask my opinion. MD said and rightly so .
    30 minutes I will put padlock on the door and go home.
    His offer was reasonable and fair at the time. Always remember
    the management are human and in the main are doing you a favour providing you
    with a job. It works both ways . .

    Sounds as if you'd like a return to the Victorian era of take it or leave it which resulted on large amounts of poverty. You'll usually find that the management refusing to improve pay rises have received large increases themselves. If you believe that the first offer any company makes is their best and final then I have a bridge to sell you.
