London Underground pay

The following emergency resolution to the April meeting of the Regional Council was passed unanimously:

This Region is appalled by London Underground's below-inflation, five-year pay 'offer', with no commitment to improving conditions. Our union must reject this insult, and fight as effectively as possible for a much better, preferably one-year offer.

We welcome efforts to pursue a joint approach with the other unions. We resolve to produce and distribute information to members about pay and conditions. We believe that the unions should specify the pay figure we aspire to, which should include a specified flat-rate sum to benefit lower-paid grades.
