A station worker assists a passenger

Workers on the Heathrow Group have secured a significant victory, after an RMT campaign against lone work achieved an agreement from management.

Key to this achievement was the decision of the local branch to ballot both station staff and Night Tube drivers for industrial action, showing that when workers stand together and prepare to take action, we can win concessions from our bosses.

See the attached bulletin for more details.
