Tube Lines RMT Representatives Call For Further Industrial Action In Pension Dispute
We note the failure of the Joint Working Party to achieve our demands of pensions and travel equality, and the desire of our representatives to take further industrial action. This is in line with our previous decision of 27 July to call targeted, serious, sustained, effective and strategically-planned action, in pursuit of this dispute. Should Tube Lines continue to refuse our entirely justified demands, we are prepared to take further industrial action and to continue this campaign until we are successful.
We therefore instruct our members on Tube Lines to not work any overtime between 17:30 on Friday 5 October and 05:30 on Monday 8 October.
We instruct the General Secretary to
1. send a personal letter by post to all members involved explaining this action and urging their full support
2. facilitate workplace visits by officers and representatives
3. send a letter to members employed by London Underground and other companies that are part of the TfL Pension Scheme explaining why opening the TfL Pension Fund to all Tube Lines employees will benefit all members of the fund, and therefore encouraging them to support this action.
We remain available for talks, and remind Tube Lines and its owner, TfL, that it can avoid
this industrial action by meeting our members’ just demand for equal pensions and passes.
London Transport Regional Council, branches and Tube Lines representatives to be advised.
