RMT to ballot all ABM cleaner members for Strike Action

Subject: RATES OF PAY AND CONDITIONS OF SERVICE, CLEANERS – ABM (LU CONTRACT)

That we note the report from our Lead Officer following the meeting with our ABM union representatives; and that no movement on any of our matters raised have been addressed by the company. We therefore instruct the General Secretary to advise the company that we are in dispute over their failure to provide free staff travel, a company wide sick pay scheme
or decent company pension.

We instruct the General Secretary to advise ABM we are now in dispute; and to ballot all ABM members for Strike Action.

We also instruct the General Secretary to arrange political representation to address these matters with the London Mayor and in Parliament through an Early Day Motion at the earliest opportunity and for a delegation of cleaners to City Hall.

Further; we change the name of this file to “Justice for ABM Cleaners”.
We recognise that justice will only be achieved by our cleaners being taken back into LUL!

Members to be advised by email & text.

All affected branches, the Cleaning Grades Committee & the London Transport Regional Council to be advised.
