EVERY JOB MATTERS – DEFENDING JOBS ON LONDON UNDERGROUND (LUL/14/5)
We are delighted to report that Vicky Hayward is to be reinstated to her job as London Underground CSA. LUL sacked Vicky last year using CCTV "evidence" that was not available to Vicky or her rep, but following a meeting yesterday between the union's General Secretary and LUL's Managing Director, Regional Organiser John Leach advises that the company has agreed to overturn this decision. We are pleased that LUL has allowed fairness to prevail.
Join activists from RMT Central Line East and Hands Off London Transport to leaflet and petition passengers at Leytonstone station against ticket office closures and staffing cuts.
Local Labour MP John Cryer will also be joining this action.
London Underground wants to close every ticket office on the Tube and cut nearly 1,000 jobs; united action by workers and communities can stop them!

RE-GRADING OF WATERLOO & CITY LINE SERVICE CONTROL STAFF – LONDON UNDERGROUND (LUL/2/2)
Further to my previous Circular No. IR/292/14, 31st October 2014, the General Grades Committee considered this matter and took the decision to escalate this dispute by conducting a ballot for strike action in pursuit of pay justice for these members. I can now advise that the ballot papers will be posted to affected members on Tuesday 11th November and the closing date for this ballot is Tuesday 25th November 2014. I will keep you informed of all further developments.
