96.4% ‘yes’ ballot result in excessive track noise dispute

That we note the strong 96.4% ‘yes’ ballot result for Action Short of a Strike our members have returned in this dispute, and congratulate our members, branches, reps and Lead Officer.
We also note a meeting with the company took place last week which went well; and that we are waiting for a letter from London Underground setting out resolutions to the matter of excessive rail noise following that meeting.

Upon receipt of the letter; we instruct the General Secretary to arrange an urgent meeting asap of all affected Train Operator H&S reps, the Trains Safety Council, Lead Officer, Senior Assistant General Secretary and members of the NEC in attendance.

We will consider the remedial proposals from the company at the reps meeting, and if necessary, the use of our convincing industrial action mandate to defend the health & safety of our members and the travelling public.

Members to be advised by email & text.

Relevant branches and the London Transport Regional Council.
