From TfL No1 Branch Secretary Linda Wiles. You can download the original version of the newsletter which is attached below this article

"Management aren't treating us with the dignity and respect we deserve by trying to break existing agreements"

Recognised members in Travel Information Call Centre, Travel Information Centres, all areas of Oyster, Lost Property Office & Customer Services voted 63% in favour of strike action and 77% in favour of action short of the strike.

This is a decisive mandate for industrial action and a clear message that TfL RMT members will fight to defend their current terms & conditions and for the fair and decent reward they deserve for the additional Olympic and Paralympic workloads.
