TERMS AND CONDITIONS, STATION STAFF - LONDON UNDERGROUND (LUL/14/2)

The following resolution was submitted for consideration to your National Executive Committee by both our Neasden Branch and the London Transport Regional Council:

“Neasden Branch notes the resolution passed by the LTRC calling for a combine-wide ballot of station grades over London Underground's failure to properly address the issue of workplace violence.

Meeting called over workplace violence and Revenue Control Inspector vacancies

Subject: STAFFING LEVELS, REVENUE CONTROL INSPECTORS – LONDON UNDERGROUND

That we note the resolution from our London Transport Regional Council regarding the appalling spike in violence at work against our operational members, the company’s failure or worse intentional non-filling of RCI vacancies which has reduced RCI staff numbers on a massive scale; down from 237 to 140 over 10 years.

To literally add insult to injury; the company are now proposing to replace our RCI grade with an inferior grade of Revenue Control Officer; on £18,000 less salary!

Urgent meeting called to discuss ‘TfL Work-Related Violence and Aggression Strategy' document

Subject: VIOLENCE AT WORK

That we note that the company have produced and sent the union a document entitled ‘TfL Work-Related Violence and Aggression Strategy’.

We instruct the General Secretary to circulate the document to our Stations and Trains Tier 2 Safety Council Representatives and arrange an urgent meeting of our Stations and Trains Tier 2 Safety Council Representatives, Lead Officer, Senior Assistant General Secretary and members of the NEC in attendance.

Members to be advised by email & text.
