RMT Rebuts 'Perverse Misinterpretation' Of Olympic Deal By London Underground
"We will not accept London Underground reneging on our agreement nor any other organisation"
We note the correspondence from London Underground, which poses a perverse misinterpretation of the agreement we reached at ACAS, and which has been circulated widely to LU train drivers by ASLEF. We instruct the General Secretary to reply to this letter, giving a detailed rebuttal of its contents, and to circularise this reply to our representatives.
We note the General Secretary’s efforts to arrange an immediate return to ACAS to enforce our agreement.
We will not accept London Underground reneging on our agreement nor any other organisation – including a fellow trade union – trying to sabotage it, or obstructing our representatives in carrying out their duties. We will support and defend our members, representatives and agreements with all means at our disposal.
We instruct the General Secretary to, as a matter of urgency, prepare a ballot matrix of our London Underground members as previously instructed; to complete this and place a report in front of us on or before Thursday 21 June.
We refer this matter back to our Southern Sub-Committee for further examination and report.
London Transport Regional Council and branches to be advised.
