Northumberland Park IT Disciplinary Dispute Reaches 'Satisfactory' Conclusion: Industrial Action Ballot Cancelled
RMT General Grades Committee decision:
That we note the report from our Regional Organiser. We note that the outcome of the disciplinary process was that our members were issued with 52-week warnings to run from the date of the alleged offence, and that as this was in 2008, the warnings have now expired.
Whilst not perfect, this is a satisfactory conclusion to this dispute, and we congratulate our branch and our members for the firm stand that they took in defence of their workmates and of workplace justice. We instruct the General Secretary to cancel our industrial action ballot, inform the company that this dispute is now settled, and send a letter to the members to whom ballot papers were issued explaining this outcome.
LU Fleet branch and London Transport Regional Council to be advised.
