RMT, TSSA And Unite To Take Joint TfL Strike Action

We note the correspondence from the Lead Officer and senior reps from TfL No 1 branch informing us that TSSA and Unite have called strike action on this matter on Friday 9th May.

While this union, in the interest of solidarity and unity agrees to call our members out on strike on the same date, we are appalled that these unions did not coincide their action with those of our members on London Underground.

This GGC is determined to pursue this issue on behalf of our members. This GGC therefore instructs all relevant members not to book on for any duty that books on from Friday 9th May at 06:00 hours until Saturday 10th May at 05:59 hours.

We agree to inform all relevant members by text and email of this decision
TfL number 1 Branch, London Transport Regional Council and branches 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.
