GWU says more Arriva employees withdrew resignation from union
The General Workers’ Union insisted today that contrary to what the Public Transport Union was claiming, the number of workers who were withdrawing their resignation and retaining their membership in the former was increasing.
The PTU, the newly set up house union of Arriva workers, yesterday denied a claim by the GWU that a number of workers had rejoined it after having defected to the PTU.
The GWU said today it was informing the management of Arriva about the workers’ decision. It said that because it was a serious and responsible union, it was not in a position to submit the exaggerated requests the acting president of the PTU wanted.
It said that discussions on the first collective agreement for Arriva employees will continue tomorrow and it will be doing its utmost for the talks to be concluded within three weeks.
