We note the report from the Lead Officer along with correspondence from LU Engineering Branch regarding the Work Train Controller members on the VGC Crossrail Project whose rate of pay is approximately half that of other grades.

Despite this matter being raised as a collective grievance, the rate of pay has not been corrected and the Lead Officer has requested a dispute situation and ballot for industrial action over this matter.
