The new freeday arrangements previously advised have not been implemented for Waterloo drivers.

From week commencing the 5th of March 2017, you have to tell CRO which freedays you are available to work, not the ones you want off. To do this you are required to fill in a form, and fax it to CRO showing availability dates up to 4 weeks in advance.

For more information, download the CRO poster here.

The hardship monthly draw was proposed in March 2016 as a means to boost our ailing hardship fund coffers while providing a bit of fun for its members. The money raised is split 50/50 between the hardship fund and a monthly prize drawn using a randomly generated number. Whoever has purchased that number wins the prize. The first draw took place in July 2016.

If you wish to renew your number(s) so you're included in July's draw, or if you wish to join the monthly hardship fund draw, payment must be made before the end of June. The cost per number is £15 which includes six monthly draws (July to December).

For more information, please contact the Waterloo Nine Elms Branch Secretary.
