RMT to write to members about LUL's new 'HOT' process

We note the report from the Lead Officer; and following failed talks with London Underground Management and the significant security situation on Tube network and the strength of concern expressed by our affected Members and their Reps we instruct the General Secretary by the end of this week to:

  • Write to all members advising them that we are strongly opposed to LU's insistence, contained in the new HOT Process, compelling our members to look inside unattended items. Also to give guidance to our members on what to do when dealing with such packages.
  • Seek a face to face meeting with the Mayor to advise him of this issue and to make him clear about our position; and that safety critical training designed to assist our members when dealing with 'active shooter' and 'bladed weapon.'
  • Contact the DfT to verify statements by LU that these changes are driven by them.

We do not believe this to be the case and need the issue clarified.

All members to be advised by email and text.

All relevant Branches and the London Transport Regional Council to be advised.
