RMT Seeks Comments On LUL's 'Guidance For The Use Of Social Media'

From General Secretary Bob Crow

Management have written to inform us of a new policy which gives guidance to staff over the use of social media. I write to advise branches that this matter has now been considered by the General Grades Committee and has made the following decision:-

“We note the correspondence from London Underground. We remain concerned about the potential use of these guidelines to unfairly discipline our members.

We instruct the General Secretary to circulate these draft guidelines to our London Underground Company Council representatives and branches seeking their comments, and to place replies in front of us.

London Transport Regional Council and branches to be advised.”

I have attached a draft copy of these guidelines for branches by email. In line with the above decision, I would be grateful branches could forward any comments by post to Head Office or by email to Industrial Relations.
