RMT Pursues Issue of 'Command and Control Review'

General Grades Committee decision:

We note the correspondence from London Underground. We now have a little more information on this matter than previously, and note that the physical moves of the affected functions will not now commence until after the 2012 Olympic Games.

We note that discussion will take place at Service Control Functional and Health & Safety Councils this month. We instruct the General Secretary to:
• organise a meeting of our representatives on these Councils as soon as practical after these meetings, together with our representatives in other affected London Underground functions (Power Control room, track access control, APD Engineering Incident Response Coordination) and in the other companies involved in this Review (Thales, UK Power Networks Services, Tube Lines)
• write to Thales, UK Power Networks Services and Tube Lines requesting further information and copies of all documentation
• obtain from our representatives copies of all documentation they have received from the employers on this issue so far, and share with them the information on the file
• obtain the legal opinion regarding Equality Impact Assessments instructed by the previous decision
