Updating RMT Membership Database

The following resolution submitted by Stratford No 1 was carried at the Regional Council meeting on September 29th.

This Region is very disappointed that for two years in succession, it has taken several months for the union to update its database for London Underground membership following a change in the law (last year) and a company re-organisation (this year). In both cases, this has hampered this union's ability to take effective industrial action. We ask the Council of Executives to urgently examine how future updates can be carried out much more efficiently and promptly.
