In your article titled TfL staff lobby bosses over pay offer (M Star February 3) Steve Hedley, RMT regional organiser, is totally correct in his assertion: "Unless people are prepared to take industrial action, this will keep happening."
The following resolution, submitted by LU Engineering branch and seconded by TfL no.1 branch, was passed at the Regional Council meeting on 28 January 2010.
This branch believes that the conduct of the recent dispute over pay raised some serious issues of democracy and integrity. This resolution seeks to improve the way in which the executive operates in future disputes. We demand that:
Once a decision to ballot has been made, the executive moves decisively to implementation
Communications with members and reps on the progress of negotiations is honest
RMT General Grades Committee have decided to accept the LUL pay offer.
General Secretary, Bob Crow says "After giving careful consideration to the situation, the General Grades Committee has decided to accept the most recent offer in respect of the 2009 and 2010 pay increases and the associated improvements to conditions of service. This was a 1.5% increase from 1 April 2009 for one year and RPI + 0.5% or 0.5% whichever is the greater for year two."
