I've only been with RM for 8 months so I can only comment on my short experience.
While I support the CWU in it's stance to keep the present T&C's and prevent a two tier workforce, I also question why the Union doesn't stand up for new starters/part timers.
My experiences are a lack or limited training period, difficulty in claiming overtime, no holiday slots and pressure to perform as well has experienced operatives to name a few.
It is often posted on this forum that you should go and see your rep if you have a problem but these problems are well known to everybody in RM and still allowed to continue. These so called great T&C's that we are fighting for aren't so great to new starters/part timers.
Even if we win in this dispute I can only see things going down hill in the future. The bullying and harassment will only get worse in a drive to keep the company acceptably profitable and judging by the present situation, the brunt of this will be felt by new staters/part timers.
I would like to add that I still enjoy the job.

It was a 97.1% Yes vote.
It was a 2.9% No vote.
You can't have the non voters, that's not how democracy works.

“Trusting” it’ll all work out ok for us at the bottom sounds a bad plan.
Agreements are better.
