Resolution: £5 Minimum Oyster Top-Up

fiverThe following resolution, submitted by Piccadilly & District West branch and seconded by Hammersmith & City branch, was carried unanimously at the Regional Council meeting on 28 January 2010.

This Union has not been consulted on the implementation of the £5 minimum top up at Ticket offices. We believe this policy is both an attack on customers, especially poorer people, and a threat to the future of ticket offices and jobs.

As such, we believe that RMT should be in dispute with the Company. We were firmly against the initial trial and the purpose of LU introducing it permanently has changed from cutting queueing times to reducing ticket sales at windows - which LU will use to start removing Station Assistant Multi-Functionals from across the combine.

We call upon the Executive/GGC to ballot all stations members for action short of strike, and for this action to include boycotting the £5 minimum policy.
