Unions Oppose TfL Attempt to Divide Equalities
RMT General Grades Committee decision:
We note the documentation on file regarding TfL’s proposal to divide its Equality and Inclusion team into two parts, one for staff issues and one for service delivery. We endorse the objections that staff side have raised to this proposal. We further believe that this division inaccurately implies a significant difference between equalities issues facing workers and those facing passengers, whereas workers and passengers share similar a interest in an accessible, non-discriminatory transport system.
We instruct the General Secretary to obtain a report on the current situation with Project Horizon, and to place this in front of us.
London Transport Regional Council and branches to be advised.
