Meetings and events
All Neasden Reps and Activists are asked to meet in Wembley Park booking hall on Thursday 28th August at 10am for a general walkabout and recruitment day.
This event is being organised not only to recruit new members, but also to let the frontline staff who are currently in the firing line with the 'Fit For The Future' debacle, that we support them. It doesn't mater what grade you are, they are coming for all of us eventually!
Any branch member who needs to take unpaid leave on this date in order to attend will be reimbursed by Regional Council.
A mass meeting of all London Underground members has been arranged to discuss the current situation in our campaign against LUL’s plans to cut jobs and close ticket offices. The meeting has been called to gauge the view of members which will be fed back to the union’s executive when it considers our next course of action.
The meeting will take place on Friday 22nd August 2014 at the Indian YMCA near Warren Street Station from 2pm.
41 Fitzroy Square
I hope you will be able to attend this important meeting.
Just a reminder that the next branch meeting is this evening at 16:00hrs at The Torch Pub, Bridge Road, Wembley HA9 9AB.

TRANSPORT UNION RMT today issued a renewed call for the biggest possible turn-out in support of the next round of protests organised up and down the country by the Palestine Solidarity Campaign for an end to the massacre in Gaza.
With nearly 2000 Palestinian’s killed, 10,000 injured and schools, refuges and hospitals targeted, RMT is urging all member’s to join the protests and to ensure a massive and continuing trade union presence on the streets as the PSC campaign forces the voices of opposition into the mainstream media.
The London RMT Women's Lunch will be at the Southbank centre on August 14th from 1pm until about 4pm. If it is sunny we will be sat outside on the terrace otherwise inside with an RMT flag as a tablecloth so you can see us! The Southbank centre has got a bar/cafe but you can also bring your own food and drink so we usually bring crisps and dips etc.
This is a regular monthly meeting, very relaxed and a chance to catch up with other women in your union.

Urgent: Demonstration tomorrow in solidarity with ISS cleaners
09.00 Tuesday 8th July Old Palace Yard (opposite Parliament)
You will be aware that we are still in dispute with ISS over their plans to impose a Biometric Fingerprinting system to book on for duty. We had reached agreement that the company would allow the old booking on system for two weeks while we continued to talk. These talks have unfortunately failed to reach agreement.
MORE STAFF FOR BANK GROUP? YOUR HELP REQUIRED!
RMT put the case for more staff on the group, in particular:
- more weekend staff at Bank
- an additional weekday middle-turn CSA at St. Paul’s
- adjusting staffing at Chancery Lane during the evening peak
If there are other specific times and locations which you would like to be considered, please let me know.
Management agreed to put together a ‘business case’ for these. But we need evidence!
This is the speech I gave to TUC Disabled Workers' Conference on 28 May.
Many of you will have your own experiences of both the freedom provided by public transport and the difficulty using it – be that the railway, buses, shipping, air travel, trams, riverboats, taxis, or other modes of transport.
Let’s look at some statistics and facts – mainly about the railways.
In a 2013 survey of disabled people, nearly 80% used the railways, half of them at least monthly, often weekly or more.
