Subject: BREAKDOWN IN INDUSTRIAL RELATIONS, TRAIN OPERATORS, VICTORIA LINE – LONDON UNDERGROUND

That we note the report from the Lead Office and commend the negotiations team, Finsbury Park Branch and members for their determination to address the breakdown in industrial relations on Victoria Line trains.

We remain in dispute.
