Attached is the "Professional Service Control Agreement" dated 5th January 2005.
This agreement covers all staff who are employed in the Service Control Function in the operation of Service Control and the arrangements for the staffing of Control Rooms and signal cabins operated by LU. This is supplementary to the Company’s “Principles of Employment”.
Attached is LUL's 'Refusal To Work On The Grounds Of Health And Safety' Document
You may find it useful to read, should you be concerned about carrying out a job or particular task, and want to know the procedure for refusing to work on safety grounds.
This document is a guideline for managers when disciplining LU staff regarding attendance. It sets out how and when LU believes a warning of less than 26 weeks is appropriate.
LU has altered it's policy on allowing drivers taking medication for depression to drive trains. Below is the company stance and forms used are attached.

We note the report from our Regional Organiser. London Underground has now implemented this procedure, and while it improves on the previous procedure in some respects, it does not include the right to representation for those accused of bullying and/or harassment from the start of the process, despite RMT and all other recognised unions taking the position that it should.
We maintain our position on this and will pursue it through appropriate channels.
London Transport Regional Council and branches to be advised.
We note the report from our Regional Organiser and the resolution from our Finsbury Park branch.
We note that it is the unanimously-held view of our drivers' representatives and branch officers on the Piccadilly line that the union should ballot Piccadilly line drivers for strike action without delay.
Our representatives believe that the line's management are riding roughshod over agreements and for some time appear to have been deliberately misinterpreting policy on SPADs, holistic reports and attendance, particularly at Arnos Grove.
Attached is the 'Level 1 / Tier 1 combined referal form' for train side to refer issues up from level one meetings.
This is the speech I gave at RMT Women's Conference in launching the union's model Domestic Violence policy:
Today is International Women’s Day. Actually, it’s International Working Women’s Day, set up over 100 years ago by socialist women in the workers’ movement to fight for our rights.
RMT has chosen today to launch our model policy for transport employers about domestic violence.
