Right to elect workplace representatives - Jubilee South Branch
This branch is disgusted with the attacks being made by management and the devious methods they are using to try not to recognise our rep for Stratford/North Greenwich depots.
Jason Moriarty, elected for this position by members of the branch, has refused to be recognised by LUL, despite him previously being the rep, and having had full recognition.
Each month our Executive Council Member Janine Booth reports to the Regional Council. This report as a synopsis and the full 'EC decisions' can be read here.
We've added some links to the report to explain some of the topics covered in more detail.
Remember branch meetings and the regional meeting are open to all members - this is where you can get involved and make a change in your union.
A NEW wave of tube strike action and overtime bans has led to the cancellation of tens of millions of pounds worth of essential engineering works on the Northern Line this weekend and has raised new safety fears as the Emergency Response Unit join with fellow Tube Lines staff in support of a long-running dispute over pensions and benefits justice.
The action will take place as follows:
Tube Lines members are instructed not to book on for any turns of duty that commence between: -
