RMT Pushes For Museum Job Cuts To Be Wihdrawn

We note the information on file regarding Mayor’s questions and the Early Day Motion on this issue.

We instruct the General Secretary to publish links to these on the union’s website, to email members asking them to encourage their MPs to sign the EDM, and in particular to ask those members of our Parliamentary group who have not yet signed the EDM to do so. We further instruct the General Secretary to ensure that cuts to the LT Museum are highlighted in our campaigning against the 12.5% funding cut to Transport for London.

We note verbal reports of some progress during talks with TfL on this matter, with indications that one-third of the net job cuts have been withdrawn. We continue to press for the remainder of the cuts to also be withdrawn.

We instruct the General Secretary to obtain a written report from the lead officer on the situation in talks and place this in front of us within 14 days. We remain prepared to ballot our members for industrial action should this become necessary.

London Transport Regional Council, branches and TfL representatives to be advised.
