Guards on Central Trains are continuing their campaign against the imposition of a computerised rostering system called Crewplan.
The dispute began over Christmas when RMT held 3 strike days, which called for improved holiday working payments as well as protesting about Crewplan. The strikes were solid, showing management that we were serious about the fight.
The company made a reasonable offer on holiday payments, but tied acceptance to dropping our case against Crewplan - so RMT could not agree.
Local reps threw out an ACAS agreement, and were incensed by management strong-arm tactics
