RMT to Ballot Northumberland Park Fleet Members for Action against Victimisation

RMT GGC decision:

That we note the resolution from our LU Fleet branch, and share our branch’s concern about the treatment of our members. It is wholly unacceptable that our members should face investigation for an alleged branch of the Internet and Email policy in 2008, when they were in effect working for a different company, especially as the allegations against them are of a minor nature.

We instruct the General Secretary to urgently prepare a matrix for a ballot of members for strike action and action short of strike action, as requested by the branch, and to conduct the ballot after consulting the branch about an appropriate balloting period.

We further note the correspondence from the branch regarding legal advice, and instruct the General Secretary to convene the meeting with our representative and our legal advisers as requested.
