RMT in dispute over Picadilly Line track noise issues
Danger noise hazard sign

That we note the resolution from our Finsbury Park Branch regarding the unacceptable levels of track noise on the line; that puts the travelling public and our driver members under considerable discomfort and may be a dangerous distraction and/or may obscure safety critical messages from the Controller.

We instruct the General Secretary to advise the company a dispute exists between our organisations, to prepare a ballot matrix and arrange a meeting of the Piccadilly Line Driver H&S representatives, Trains Safety Council, Lead Officer, Senior Assistant General Secretary and members of the NEC in attendance.

We remain open for talks.

Members to be advised by email & text.

Relevant branches & the London Transport Regional Council to be advised.

What is a National Executive Committee decision?

This article is an 'executive decision' which has been written by the RMT National Executive Committee. The National Executive is the union's governing body in between AGMs. Its decisions set out what the union will do on a particular issue.

These decisions can often be brief, and may be one of several passed over a period of time. To get a better understanding or find out more information about what the RMT is doing, speak to your rep or attend your branch or Regional Council meeting.
