Pay For Performance – Defend Your Pensionable Pay – Transport For London

AMENDED INDUSTRIAL ACTION

Further to my previous correspondence, I would again like to congratulate you for supporting your union’s call for strike action and action short of a strike in defence of your pension. Your Executive has carefully considered the strong wish of you and your colleagues to carry out industrial action in order to oppose these plans and those expressed by your representatives to fight TfL’s plans. I can now advise you that your General Grades Committee has decided to amend some of the industrial action.

Therefore for ease of reference the following industrial action has been called for by the General Grades Committee and replaces all previous instructions.

ALL TRANSPORT FOR LONDON MEMBERS

All Transport for London members are instructed not to book on for any shifts that commence between:-

• 21:00 hours on Tuesday 4th February 2014 until 20:59 hours on Thursday 6th February 2014.

TRANSPORT FOR LONDON TRAVEL INFORMATION CENTRE GRADE MEMBERS

Additionally Travel Information Centre Grades Members are instructed not to carry out any revenue duties between:-

• Between 09:30 hours and 11:30 hours and 18:30 hours and 20:30 hours on Friday 7th February 2014.

The company has got to understand that you and your colleagues are committed to fighting its proposals, committed to defending pensions and that you are ready to escalate the action in pursuit of pension justice.

This attack on your pension as is quite clearly intolerable and represents the future strategy of TfL management and is a threat to all members in the pension fund regardless of company or grade.

I shall be writing to our Travel Information Centre members in due course, providing guidance and instruction on the action to be taken. You have shown great support for your union’s position up to now and I urge you to continue this support and take the action as outlined above.

STRIKE TO DEFEND PENSIONABLE PAY!
SUPPORT YOUR UNION

Yours sincerely

Bob Crow
General Secretary
