Resolution progress reports

Reports on progress with resolutions passed by the Regional Council.

RMT to Consider Website Improvements and an 'App'

RMT Council of Executives decisions:

RMT Membership ‘App’

That we note the resolution from the London Transport Regional Council and we see the positive nature that an ‘App’ could do for our union. The General Secretary is to invite a suitable software designer to give a presentation to the Council of Executives on the benefits and the protection we would need to bring this idea forward.

Executive decision: Awards for Activists

Council of Executives decision:

That we note this resolution and that this request has not come from the families of the unfortunate deceased.

However, it would be inappropriate to name awards after activists due to the amount of activists that we have in this Union.

If the families of any activists or members want a memorial the General Secretary is to arrange for this to be in the Garden at Maritime House.

Threat to Withdraw Staff Nominee Travel Facilities

RMT's General Grades Committee decision:

We welcome the resolution from our London Transport Regional Council on this matter, and reaffirm our determination to preserve the right of TfL and London Underground employees to both a staff pass and a nominee pass. We also reaffirm that the fact that an employee may nominate a person who lives at the same address as them for a nominee pass, regardless of their personal relationship with them, is progressive and egalitarian, and we will defend it.

Report on Progress of Resolutions - October 2009


National Young Members Advisory Committee – Formation as per Rule Book

The General Secretary refused to accept this resolution for the agenda of the Council of Executives, as it attempted to “instruct” them to ensure that the union’s rules are carried out and a Young Members’ Advisory Committee properly established. Recommendation: we resubmit this resolution with the phrase “This branch instructs” replaced by “This Regional Council requests”.

Future of the Jobs/Pay/Justice Dispute

Cleaners: Progress with Regional Council's request for renewed campaign

Following the resolution passed by our Regional Council in March, the union's General Grades Committee (part of the national executive) made the following decision on June 1st. The latest report is that "work is in progress".


That we note the resolution from the LT Regional Council and the continuing sackings of our cleaner members and the need to build up our membership in this important grade.

We also take into consideration the recent meeting with our Parliamentary Group, which is placed on file.

The General Secretary is therefore instructed:

‘Blame the bosses’

  • This resolution is a statement of policy which contains no proposals for action: there is therefore no indication that the Regional Council needs to do anything to implement it. However, any suggestions are welcome.
