National Executive Council Member report

Regular reports from Jared Wood, who represents the RMT London Transport Region on the National Executive Council.

C of E Report

Dear All,

At the General Grades Committe it was agreed to put on a ballot of all Train Ops as soon as possible in Defence of the reinstatement of Bro McGuigan and to escalate this to other Grades if and when neccessary.

We will be discussing our response to the draconian new rosters being put forward by management on the Stations. I will be contacting functional reps and Branches to discuss our response. RMT will not accept rosters that leave our stations without adequate staff to the job nor will we accept ridiculous working patterns that leave our members with no work/life balance.
