RMT and Emcor Rail
RMT General Grades Committee decision:
We note that following objections from our representatives, Emcor Rail withdrew its plan to introduce fingerprinting, and ceased using vehicle trackers to inappropriately monitor staff. We welcome this outcome, and congratulate our representatives and branch. We instruct the General Secretary to make this information available to all lead officers, as we are aware that other employers attempt to introduce these unacceptable practices.
We further note that we are in the process of achieving recognition with Emcor Rail for the LU contract. We instruct the General Secretary to place the draft recognition agreement in front of us for ratification when available.
This matter to be placed back in front of us in the event of any development. London Transport Regional Council and branches to be advised.
