Piccadilly Line reps obstructed from carrying out union duties by bosses

Elections for the pensions Consultative committee

 

It’s that time again when there are elections for staff representatives to sit on the pensions committee to keep an eye on our money.

 

The voting paperwork is now out and the main thing is we need to get the right people on there with the experience and knowledge to look after our money in the proper way, and to keep an eye on what LUL and the government are trying to do with our fund.
