Dear Colleagues,

DISMISSAL – EAMONN LYNCH – TRAIN OPERATOR - LUL

I write to you with further clarification in this matter and below you will find the latest General Grades Committee decision: -

“That we note the request of our Bakerloo Line branch that we suspend the strike action on 20th to 21st February due to demand from members across London Underground to escalate the fight for reinstatement of our sacked reps via a ballot of all driver members. We agree with the sentiments of this request and therefore instruct the General Secretary to suspend the strike action called by our previous decision and instruct members to work normally.
