Transformation: RMT seeks legal opinion on "maternity leave and organisational change"

That we note the resolution from our London Transport Regional Council regarding the unacceptable and fundamentally sexist and disadvantaging treatment of women
employees going through the company’s Transformation process while on Maternity leave.

We instruct the General Secretary to take the matter up with the company through the Machinery of Negotiations without delay; and seek a legal opinion on London Underground Ltd and Transport for London’s application of maternity leave and organisational change.

Members to be advised by email & text.

That we note the report from our Lead Officer, the imposition from the company and the grave situation facing our members with the company riding roughshod over agreements and legal requirements.
