Industrial action

When negotiations fail, RMT members take action

City Cruises strike ballot to begin

We note the report from our Lead Officer and the strength of feeling amongst our Members of crew in the City Cruises regarding the unfair dismissal of Sis Hairia Abdo for what are common working practices throughout the company.

We further note the Crew Members are calling for an immediate ballot so they can robustly defend Sis Hairia Abdo as soon as possible pending a strong yes vote which they are confident will be the ballot result.

Ballot of drivers in defence of Brother Davis to be extended

We note the resolution from our Central Line West Branch requesting that all Train Operators from White City and West Ruislip be balloted alongside comrades already being balloted from Central Line East for industrial action.

This NEC too condemns the highhanded and overly severe treatment of Bro Davis by London Underground management and note the following:

There are many comparators of similar and even more serious incidents where the Train Op had either no action taken against them or a much more appropriate sanction. These were ignored.

Executive decision on Picc Line Workshop staff action

We salute the determination of our Members in the rock solid ballot turnout and yes vote in their resolve to halt the attempted introduction of a two-tier work force in the LU Piccadilly Line Fleet area; with all the detriments encapsulated for our present members; and to seek proper ongoing employment for future members joining the company.

We also note the report from our Lead Officer and that some movement was secured at yesterday’s Director level meeting; but not enough in terms of our Members aspirations.
