General Walkabout/Recruitment Campaign

A General Walkabout will take place at Bond Street and Baker Street Stations on Wednesday 15th February. All Reps and Activists are encouraged to attend. The aim of these walkabouts is to promote the RMT Union and the Neasden Branch, and to encourage new members to join. For convenience purposes, this walkabout has been arranged on the same day as the February branch meeting. Please meet in the Bond Street main booking hall area at 11am. 

Cleaning Co-Ordinator Required

Would any Branch Member be willing to take up the position of Cleaning Co-Ordinator? This person would be central to any issues involving any of the cleaners who are members of our branch, and would be expected to represent the cleaning grades at our Branch Meetings. 

If you are interested in this role or would like to know more about it, please contact the Branch Secretary or Branch Chairman. 

Local Staffing Lists Required

 

Please could all Reps send an updated copy of their local staffing lists to our Membership Secretary Nick Smith. His email address is tubeman@sky.com

It's vital that the branch membership details are up to date for potential strike action and also for branch funding. A simple copy of your local roster is sufficient enough for Nick to keep these details updated, so please forward thais ASAP. Please note that he will be requiring this list at least twice a year. 

Support for industrial action

Station staff members of the Rail, Maritime and Transport Workers Unions (RMT) will be balloted for strike action and action short of strike action in an on-going battle over job numbers, the critical safety role of control rooms, forced displacement of staff, grading and a crisis resulting from London Undergrounds closure of ticket offices
