Arnos Grove Annual Leave Issue Could Lead To Dispute

We note the resolution from our Finsbury Park branch and share its concerns at London Underground Ltd's refusal to honour annual leave commitments and abide by the established procedure. Accordingly, we instruct the General Secretary to write to LUL calling on it to ensure that its local management at Arnos Grove depot grant odd days leave and agree to allow members to carry over and use annual leave accrued from previous years. The letter is also to warn LUL that failure to respond fully to our request will bring our unions into dispute with the company over this issue.

We welcome the cooperation with ASLEF on this matter, and aim to coordinate with ASLEF any ballot and subsequent industrial action that may be necessary.

Reports and developments are to be placed in front of us.

London Transport Regional Council and branches to be advised. Finsbury Park branch and Arnos Grove depot representatives to be advised by personal letter.
