MORE STAFF FOR BANK GROUP? YOUR HELP REQUIRED!
RMT put the case for more staff on the group, in particular:
- more weekend staff at Bank
- an additional weekday middle-turn CSA at St. Paul’s
- adjusting staffing at Chancery Lane during the evening peak
If there are other specific times and locations which you would like to be considered, please let me know.
Management agreed to put together a ‘business case’ for these. But we need evidence!

This is the speech I gave to TUC Disabled Workers' Conference on 28 May.
Many of you will have your own experiences of both the freedom provided by public transport and the difficulty using it – be that the railway, buses, shipping, air travel, trams, riverboats, taxis, or other modes of transport.
Let’s look at some statistics and facts – mainly about the railways.
In a 2013 survey of disabled people, nearly 80% used the railways, half of them at least monthly, often weekly or more.

RMT LGBT CONFERENCE, 9th - 10TH MAY 2014 BRISTOL
This conference synopsis is taken from a report by Joanne Parry
RMT LGBT Conference 2014 was opened by the Bristol branch secretary who said Bristol was well known for diversity and inclusion. There was then an address from Mick Cash, Acting General Secretary.
All drivers are invited to the launch of the London Underground Drivers’ Charter. With the prospect of
attacks on us in the form of enforced “flexibility”, deskilling and driverless trains it is essential that we take a
stand to protect our grade.
The London Mayor and the Government are whipping up a frenzy of anti-union feeling and foremost in their sights are tube drivers – it’s time to defend ourselves before it’s too late!
NOTE NEW VENUE: Find out what is happening in your work area and across London. All members welcome. Come and share views and opinions.
