From General Secretary Bob Crow

The above matter has been considered again by the General Grades Committee and has taken the following decision:-

“We note the report from our Regional Organiser and correspondence from our Branch Secretary. We congratulate our members for the action they have taken so far, and instruct the General Secretary to conduct a new ballot for strike action and industrial action short of strike action, in pursuit of our demands for agreements (with implementation dates) on the issues of: a substantial pay rise to at least the London Living Wage; sick pay; overtime rate; allocation of overtime; days in lieu; better roster system; weekly working hours; uniform issue; zero-hour contracts; third party agreement; consistent bank holiday pay; free travel; and job security.

We instruct the General Secretary to send a personal letter to all members involved, explaining the issues and urging them to vote yes.

We rename this file IMPROVING PAY AND CONDITIONS – CARLISLE CLEANING & SECURITY (DOCKLANDS LIGHT RAILWAY). London Transport Regional Council and branches to be advised.”

I am currently acting in accordance with the above decision and will update branches on further developments.
