Ballot to be prepared as LU managers 'attempt to unpick agreed reasonable adjustment'

Subject: DISABILITY DISCRIMINATION – LONDON UNDERGROUND

That we note the resolution from our Bakerloo Line Branch and agree that its not enough for the company to portray themselves as a progressive equal opportunities employer to staff and publicly, if they allow their junior managers to regularly attempt to unpick agreed reasonable working adjustments for our member; which will have a potential impact on all our disabled members of staff.

We instruct the General Secretary to take up the matter in-line with the resolution:

  • To support our member in pursuing an ET claim for disability discrimination against the company.
  • To make representations, via the relevant channels of LU machinery, to the company that any attempt to revoke the agreement to our member's disadvantage will result in a dispute.
  • In anticipation of such an eventuality, to prepare an industrial action ballot of all station grades members on the Bakerloo North Cover Group, with a view to escalation as and when necessary”.

Further; we instruct the General Secretary to place an updated report regarding the outcome of our member's appeal back in front of this NEC.

Members to be advised by email & text.

All operational London Underground branches & the London Transport Regional Council to be advised.
