TfL Unions Oppose Plan to "Streamline" Job-Cutting Process

RMT General Grades Committee decision:

That we note the report from our Regional Organiser. We oppose TfL’s attempt to streamline its OCP policy in order to make it easier to make redundancies due to funding cuts.

We note that all unions have agreed to reject management’s proposal to deal with this at a joint meeting at Company Council level, and instruct the General Secretary to write to TfL/LUL accordingly; the reply to be placed in front of us.

We also note and welcome the agreement of all unions to draft proposed improvements to the OCP; these proposals to be placed in front of us once drafted.

London Transport Regional Council and branches with London Underground and TfL members to be advised.
