This resolution, proposed by Stratford no.1 branch and seconded by TfL no.1 branch, was passed by the October meeting of the Regional Council ...

This Regional Council notes that our members continue to experience oppressive treatment at work, including: over-the-top disciplinary punishments, harsh attendance policies, heavy workloads, management pressure and bullying.

Resolution: Conduct of Jobs/Pay/Justice Dispute

This resolution, submitted by Stratford no.1 and seconded by Neasden, was carried at the September meeting of the Regional Council:

This region believes that before any further industrial action on the outstanding issues in our current dispute with LUL, there should be a new ballot or referendum of all members involved.
