Threat of Withdrawal of Staff Nominee Travel Facilities
This resolution, submitted by Neasden brancand amended by the Regional Council Executive, was carried unanimously at the February meeting of the Regional Council:
This Regional Council is appalled at the reports that certain GLA members once again have circulated to the media that he wishes to remove staff travel facilities for partners, flatmates, or family members under the same roof.
While we think the reason he is coming for us is, the removal of free travel for school kids, disabled and elderly people and police officers may be unpopular with his voters. He must understand that we will fight for the retention of our benefits.
We ask the union, to issue statements, saying that we will fight to keep our benefits, and actually we wish to have parity with London Overground, where their staff receive the same benefits as us, and a PRIV.
