Tube Lines Members To Strike At Beginning Of November Over Pension & Passes Dispute

We note the correspondence giving the views of the strike committee formed by our Tube Lines reps.

In line with this, we instruct our Tube Lines members to take industrial action as follows:

  • Not to book on for any shift starting on or after 06:00 on Thursday 1 November, resuming to shifts starting after 05:59 on Friday 2 November.
  • Not to work overtime at any time between 06:00 on Thursday 1 November and 06:00 on Monday 5 November.

We instruct the General Secretary to:

  • send a personal letter by post to the members involved
  • arrange a series of workplace visits and meetings in conjunction with the strike committee
  • arrange the production and distribution of a bulletin for Tube Lines members, to include reports of the impacts of the industrial action in this dispute so far
  • carry out our previous decision to place in front of us a report on the cases of those LUL members who invoked the procedure for refusal to work on the grounds of health and safety concerns during the Tube Lines strike in April.

This cancels the industrial action called as a result of our decision of 18 October 2012.

London Transport Regional Council, branches and Tube Lines representatives 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.
