Transformation: RMT seeks legal opinion on "maternity leave and organisational change"

That we note the resolution from our London Transport Regional Council regarding the unacceptable and fundamentally sexist and disadvantaging treatment of women
employees going through the company’s Transformation process while on Maternity leave.

We instruct the General Secretary to take the matter up with the company through the Machinery of Negotiations without delay; and seek a legal opinion on London Underground Ltd and Transport for London’s application of maternity leave and organisational change.

Members to be advised by email & text.

All LU & TfL Branches, The Women’s Advisory Committee & the London Transport Regional Council to be advised.

What is a National Executive Committee decision?

This article is an 'executive decision' which has been written by the RMT National Executive Committee. The National Executive is the union's governing body in between AGMs. Its decisions set out what the union will do on a particular issue.

These decisions can often be brief, and may be one of several passed over a period of time. To get a better understanding or find out more information about what the RMT is doing, speak to your rep or attend your branch or Regional Council meeting.
