Dear Colleagues,

BREAKDOWN IN INDUSTRIAL RELATIONS, GREEN PARK & EUSTON AREAS LONDON UNDERGROUND

Following the recent ballot result regarding the above, members are congratulated for returning a solid vote in favour of action over the deterioration of industrial relations at Green Park Area and Euston Area. This dispute is due to the consistent unacceptable bullying and intimidating behaviour from management and despite further efforts from your RMT Reps to make progress on these issues, they are facing total intransigence from LUL.
