  2. Produce a ‘Know Your Rights’ leaflet once we have the legal advice produced for members.
  3. The General Secretary to write to all Regional Organisers to find out how wide the immigration check problem is in their areas.
  4. The General Secretary to initially contact TfL/LUL and this will widen to all companies where evidence exists that there are problems there as well.
