Thales T&S Waterloo & Palestra: Reasons to VOTE YES

March 20, 2015



Reasons to vote ‘YES’ in the forthcoming ballot:


NO COMPULSORY REDUNDANCIES: There are vacancies and positions available, so let’s fill them with people that are at risk. We believe that there is no need for these people to be worried about losing their jobs and Thales should end their at risk status NOW.


If it can happen to them, it can happen to YOU.


NO TO ROSTER CHANGES: Thales want to change people’s roster patterns and the members affected believe it is for the worse. We’ve had the discussions, we have said we will look at changes but they have to be in line with what our members want. However, to date there’s been no proposal except to end twelve hour shifts.


This is an important principle, when they look at other shift patterns in the business or whether people work days or nights, or whether they work Monday To Friday, we want Thales to recognise that these talks are negotiation and not a tick box on the way to implementation. That is the reason for balloting everyone


If it can happen to them, it can happen to YOU.
