Noel Roberts Sacking: East Ham Branch Stations To Be Balloted For Strike

As members will be aware (Circular No. IR/022/15, 21st January 2015), RMT is currently conducting a campaign against the unfair dismissal of Brother Noel Roberts from London Underground and a further resolution has recently been received from East Ham Branch in relation to this matter, which is as follows:-

“This Branch notes the unfair dismissal of Brother Noel Roberts. This Branch resolved to continue campaigning for his reinstatement. This Branch requests the GGC to call for a ballot for industrial action of all our members on the East Ham, Tower Hill and Embankment Groups, with a view to moving to an all grades ballot in support of Bro Roberts’ campaign for reinstatement.”

This matter has been considered by the General Grades Committee, which has taken the decision to prepare a ballot for industrial action of all our Station Grades members on the East Ham, Tower Hill and Embankment Groups, with a view, if necessary at a later date of moving to an all grades ballot.

I am currently acting in accordance with this decision and will keep you advised of all developments.
