Resolution to Regional Council: Escalation of Industrial Action

This resolution, submitted by East Ham branch and seconded by Camden 3 branch, was carried at to the October meeting of the Regional Council:

This Regional Council notes:

The 24hr strikes and the action short of strike on London Underground have been a very successful in shifting the dynamic between the workforce and LU management.

The co-ordinated action between the RMT and TSSA has been both industrially successful and politically significant in boosting morale and organisation of the rank and file across all sectors.

Regional Council Report:

Resolution: Management Bullying of Staff

This resolution, submitted by East Ham branch, was withdrawm at the March meeting of the Regional Council as it had been overtaken by events!

That East Ham Branch believes that the tactic of isolated & localised action as seen on London Underground last year was not as effective as it should have been, whilst being strongly supported. It would now be fair to say that local managers are redoubling their efforts to intimidate and bully staff into coming into work sick or face redeployment. This is certainly still happening by the current GSM on East Ham group.
