Re: Notice of dispute

I write to inform you that the failure of Ocean Integrated Services Ltd. to provide a satisfactory response on the issues outlined below has led to a trade dispute situation between our organisations as defined by s244 of the Trade Union and Labour Relations (Consolidation) Act 1992, and we will be balloting our members at the Royal College of Music for industrial action.

1. Failure of Ocean to respect workers’ previous terms and conditions;
2. Excessive workload, unfair distribution of work, unrealistic expectations on workload, and harassment.

I can confirm that the IWGB remains available for discussions, through the services of ACAS. If you would like to pursue this please contact me directly. If we do not receive a satisfactory response within a period of seven days then we shall write again, in line with the relevant legislation, to serve a notice of ballot.

Thank you very much in advance for your attention on this matter.

Kind regards,

Dr. Jason Moyer-Lee
