Cleshar and Morson members to be balloted over pay

Subject: PAY, TERMS & CONDITIONS, PROTECTION STAFF –​ MORSON & CLESHAR (LU CONTRACTS)

That we note the resolution from our LU Engineering Branch regarding the unsatisfactory rate of pay for members working in Cleshars Ltd and Morsons
International; and that both companies are acting in concert to deny our members a pay rise.

We applaud our members will to address this through Industrial Action, and accordingly instruct the General Secretary to advise both Cleshars and Morsons we
are now in dispute and to:

  • Commence a ballot for Industrial Action in the form of a Strike for all Protection Staff members (Protection Masters, Possession Masters and Train Masters) on London Underground who work within Cleshars and Morsons.
  • In parallel, seek legal advice as the need to ballot because as self-employed staff we believe that we do not have to accept work
  • Seek an urgent meeting with the London Mayor regarding this matter.

All Cleshar and Morsons Members to be advised.

LU Engineering Branch and the London Transport Regional Council to be advised.
