Branch motion leads to important change

Let's talk about motions.

Last year a local representative discovered that period products varied not only in availability but also in price on their group. Train operators were being charged double and in one station five times the amount that station staff were for the same products. Responding to this feedback from members, the rep raised the matter and discussed it at their local branch, Piccadilly & District West.

From this, a motion was proposed stating that period products should be freely and readily available in the workplace. The motion was carried locally and then regionally.

This week, the company announced that free sanitary products will be available in all operational building toilets throughout the network. This is a great example of how a motion can work.
