Arwyn Thomas to Return to Work on Driver's Pay

RMT General Grades Committee decision:

We welcome London Underground’s agreement to return Arwyn Thomas to work.

We thank and congratulate Arwyn, his workmates, our representatives, officers, branches and Regional Council for their resolve and commitment to achieving the return of our unfairly-sacked activist to work.

We also thank those members of other trade unions, and of the wider public, who have supported our campaign for a just settlement to this dispute.

This outcome shows that RMT is a trade union that is prepared to, and able to, defend its representatives.
We hereby cancel the strike action called for 27 June to 1 July, and accept the terms negotiated with London Underground.

We instruct the General Secretary to send a letter to all London Underground members advising them of this outcome and thanking them for their support, encouraging them to explain the benefits of RMT membership to their workmates and enclosing a membership form.

London Transport Regional Council and all branches to be advised, and an article to be included in the next issue of RMT News.
