RMT To Ballot Service Control Members For Industrial Action

We note that our London Underground service control representatives and members met on
Wednesday 18 April. They feel strongly that London Underground Ltd has not responded adequately
to their concerns, and wish RMT to begin a ballot for strike action and action short of strike forthwith.

We therefore instruct the General Secretary to:

  • commence this ballot
  • set timescales for it which co-ordinate with other disputes in the London Transport region, so
    long as this is practical and does not unnecessarily delay action in any dispute
  • send a personal letter by post to all members involved, urging them to vote Yes to both
    questions
  • provide support and resources to our Regional Council’s service control grades committee to
    organise for this dispute

London Transport Regional Council, branches and London Underground service control
representatives 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.
