City Cruises strike ballot to begin

We note the report from our Lead Officer and the strength of feeling amongst our Members of crew in the City Cruises regarding the unfair dismissal of Sis Hairia Abdo for what are common working practices throughout the company.

We further note the Crew Members are calling for an immediate ballot so they can robustly defend Sis Hairia Abdo as soon as possible pending a strong yes vote which they are confident will be the ballot result.

Accordingly, we instruct the General Secretary to immediately start a ballot for strike action of all our Captain and Mate Grade Members working for City Cruises in defence of Sis Hairia Abdo.

Members to be advised by postal letter, email and text.

Our River Thames Branch and the London Transport Regional Council to be advised.
