Casualisation Dispute Moves Forward

We note the views expressed by our LT region train grades committee, the need to keep our disputes and industrial action continuously under review, and our members’ need for advice and information.

We therefore instruct the General Secretary to ensure the speedy and effective implementation of our previous decision of 17 July 2012 to ensure that members are given full support and information in carrying out our industrial action, including both printed materials and personal contact with officials and representatives.

We further instruct the General Secretary to urgently circulate advice to our train driver members that in the appropriate circumstances, they seek confirmation that anyone carrying out platform duties is a member of London Underground staff fully trained, qualified, licensed and familiarised to a minimum CSA standard.

We cancel those parts of our industrial action instructing drivers not to stop at stations, contained in GGC decisions 2 August and 17 July 2012.

London Transport Regional Council and branches to be advised.

What is a National Executive Committee decision?

This article is an 'executive decision' which has been written by the RMT National Executive Committee. The National Executive is the union's governing body in between AGMs. Its decisions set out what the union will do on a particular issue.

These decisions can often be brief, and may be one of several passed over a period of time. To get a better understanding or find out more information about what the RMT is doing, speak to your rep or attend your branch or Regional Council meeting.
