Trains Reps 'Derecognition' Update

At the London Transport Regional council on 25 Oct the following emergency resolution from Jubilee South branch was put before the Region:

Right to elect workplace representatives
This branch is disgusted with the attacks being made by management and the devious methods they are using to try not to recognize our rep for Stratford/North Greenwich depots.

Jason Moriarty, elected for this position by members of the branch, has refused to be recognized by LUL despite him previously being the rep and having full recognition.

Resolutions Carried At London Transport Regional Meeting September 2012

Arrest of RMT Assistant General Secretary Steve Hedley
This Region condemns the outrageous treatment by the police of Brother Hedley on the picket line at Kings Cfross over the cleaners strike.
The state oppression and abuse of our members human rights is intolerable. The attacks on working class rights has gone too far and we need to fight back.
We therefore ask the GGC to support a complaint and legal action against the police and to publicise this gross injustice

Repealing the 'Social Care Act'
This region notes:

Regional Council Resolutions - August 2012

The following resolutions were passed at this month's regional council meeting.

London Underground Train Operations Support Managers chairing case conferences - Hammersmith & City branch
This regional council believes the new policy of allowing TOSM’s to chair case conferences is outside the current attendance procedure and we believe this to be the thin edge of the wedge.
It is not acceptable for LUL just to change a policy or procedure by sending a letter to head office and stating it has been agreed.
