RMT to Meet London Underground about Drivers' Olympics 'Deal'

RMT General Grades Committee decision:

We note the correspondence from London Underground concerning our objections to the ‘deal’ over train drivers’ working conditions during the Olympic and Paralympic Games, and the offer of a meeting between the Chair of the Trains Functional Council and our Regional Organiser to discuss this.

We instruct the General Secretary to ensure that this meeting takes place and to obtain a report of the meeting from our Regional Organiser, which is to be placed in front of us.

We further instruct the General Secretary to forward LU’s letter to our Trains Functional and Trains Health & Safety Councils representatives, inviting their comments.

London Transport Regional Council and branches to be advised.
