TfL Long Service Awards

From General Secretary Bob Crow

Further to my previous circular dated 30th April 2013 (IR/255/13), branches will recall that I wrote to TfL expressing concerns over the lack of consultation over this policy change. The above matter has now been considered by the General Grades Committee and the following decision has been taken:-

“We note the correspondence from TFL confirming that long service awards are not linked to the cost of living. However, our instruction was to obtain confirmation that these awards had kept pace with the cost of living. We therefore instruct the General Secretary to obtain this confirmation and also to confirm that the new; ‘consistent application’ of long service and retirement awards has not caused detriment to any of our members.

London Transport Regional Council and branches to be advised”

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