New W&C ballot announced as anti-union laws state mandate needs refreshing

Subject: REMOVAL OF DETRAINMENT STAFF, WATERLOO, WATERLOO & CITY LINE – LONDON UNDERGROUND

That we note the current live ballot mandate to protect our members and traveling public from the company’s cavalier approach to detrainment is about to expire due to the government anti-trades union laws; and that we need to conduct another ballot to assist our members to continue working safely.

We instruct the General Secretary to arrange a ballot for action short of a strike for all Leytonstone Depot Train Operators and Operator Instructors but excluding Night Tube Drivers.
 
The industrial action short of a strike will be in the form of refusing to enter the sidings to reverse until the train has been physically checked and doors closed on porter buttons as per existing arrangements.
                                     
 Members to be advised by email and text.

Jubilee Line South, Central Line East, Central Line West and the London TransportRegional Council to be advised.

What is a National Executive Committee decision?

This article is an 'executive decision' which has been written by the RMT National Executive Committee. The National Executive is the union's governing body in between AGMs. Its decisions set out what the union will do on a particular issue.

These decisions can often be brief, and may be one of several passed over a period of time. To get a better understanding or find out more information about what the RMT is doing, speak to your rep or attend your branch or Regional Council meeting.
