Arnos Grove Stations: RMT Ballots for Action to Restore Cut Staff Posts

RMT General Grades Committee decision:

We note the resolution from our Finsbury Park branch. We agree with our branch that staffing levels on London Underground stations are deplorably low, and that there is a specific problem with gateline staffing at Wood Green station. We note that negotiations have failed to resolve this matter, and that the branch now wishes to ballot members on Arnos Grove group of stations for action short of strikes with a view to calling an overtime ban.

We therefore instruct the General Secretary to prepare a matrix for this ballot and initiate it as soon as is practical. We further instruct the General Secretary to advise London Underground of this, to send a personal letter to all members involved, and to assist the branch with campaigning for a Yes vote.

London Transport Regional Council and branches to be advised.
