Saturdays McGuigan Strike "First stage Of A Rolling Programme"

Further to my previous Circular (IR/034/15, 29th January 2015) the ballot for strike action has concluded and members are congratulated for returning a ‘yes’ vote and for the excellent support shown despite a massive campaign of misinformation and smears mounted by LU and TfL bosses and the media.

Following this result, a meeting of RMT Train Grades Reps and Activists took place on Thursday 19th February to discuss the campaign strategy to reinstate Brother McGuigan. The General Grades Committee has considered this matter and having noted the views and wishes expressed at the meeting, has taken the decision to instruct all RMT Train Operator and Instructor Operator members NOT TO BOOK ON FOR SHIFTS THAT COMMENCE BETWEEN:-

21:30 hours on Saturday 7th March 2015 until 03:59 hours on Sunday 8th March 2015.

This action is the first stage as part of a rolling programme of industrial action and I urge all RMT London Underground Train Operators and Instructor Operators to stand firm together against this, and any future, injustices against RMT members. I will continue to keep you advised of all further developments.
