Thales GTS Waterloo and Palestra members at Waterloo and Palestra House have voted by a massive 4:1 Majority for strike action and action short of strike against compulsory redundancies and rostering.
The RMT have been and continue to meet management and we are impressing on them the need to withdraw all threats otherwise we will be naming strike and other actions in the very near future.
Our members have voted overwhelmingly despite large amounts of pressure from Management and cynical briefings urging them to vote NO. We have seen the same company resort to the anti-trade union laws and say they are not Thales GTS, the staff only work for them, their employers are actually called Thales T&S. The end result is that our members have shown their steadfast desire to fight these ‘efficiencies’ and we now call on the company to start to seriously avoid the need for our members to take action and reach a common sense agreement with the RMT that protects our members conditions.
