Progress on Central Line Asbestos

RMT General Grades Committee decision:

That we note the correspondence from our LU Engineering branch, reporting that major progress has been made in negotiating a safer system of work for track workers in this area, although there are outstanding concerns regarding non-track project staff and the potential of complacency creeping in.

We note that we are still awaiting a formal response from Stratford no.1 branch, but we understand that the branch wishes for its relevant health and safety representatives to be invited to head office to discuss the issue. We therefore instruct the General Secretary to arrange this meeting.

A report of this meeting, and any further responses from branches, to be placed in front of us.

London Transport Regional Council and relevant branches to be advised.
