Free Travel Facilities, Emirates Airline Cable Car & Thames Riverboat Services

We note the response from TfL, which falls short of our members’ justified aspiration for free travel on these services. We instruct the General Secretary to ensure that this matter is tabled for discussion with the employer(s), and to seek a joint approach with the other unions.

We also note the report on our efforts to organise the workforce on the Emirates Air Line. We instruct the General Secretary to provide full support and resources for these efforts, and to place regular progress reports in front of us.

London Transport Regional Council and branches to be advised.

RMT To Push For Free Travel on Cable Car And River Boats for All London Transport Workers

We welcome the resolution from our East Ham branch and agree that all staff working for TfL and its
subsidiaries, franchisees and contractors should be granted free travel on all its services - including the
cable car and riverboat services - for themselves and a nominee. We instruct the General Secretary to
write to Transport for London accordingly, requesting a meeting to discuss this.

We also instruct the General Secretary to place in front of us a report on the prospects of an RMT recruitment and organising campaign on the Emirates Airline Cable Car.
