We instruct the General Secretary to prepare a ballot matrix of all Train Operators and Operator Instructors across all lines on the London Underground combine, and to ensure an effective dispute escalation campaign is undertaken in preparation including:

LU: reinstate brother Mahoney or we will ballot for industrial action

We also note the company has undertaken to review the dismissal of Bro Mahoney, and state here and now that unless Bro Mahoney is re-instated without delay; this union will issue them the notice and commence a ballot of our members for industrial action(s).

Central Line drivers to strike to defend Paul Bailey

That we note following consulting our members in both Central Line East & West Branches our members wish to undertake strike action in defence of their victimised brother Paul Bailey. We therefore instruct all Train Operators and Operator Instructors not to book on for shifts from 00:01hrs to 23:59hrs on Wednesday 7th November 2018. Members to be advised by email and text. Central Line East & West Branches and the London Transport Regional Council to be advised.

That we note the resolution from our Neasden Branch; and instruct the General Secretary to obtain a report from our Lead Officer to be placed in front of this NEC by Tuesday 2nd October 2018.

Further, we instruct the General Secretary to prepare a ballot matrix of all members in the Metropolitan Line South Cover Group: CSA 1&2’s and CSS 1’s.

All Central Line drivers to be balloted for strike in defense of brother Bailey

We congratulate both our Central Line branches for standing firm behind our Brother Paul Bailey, and resisting the stitch up being perpetrated against him by the company who have now upheld his dismissal on appeal and refused to grant the union a Directors Review.

This travesty calls into question the integrity of the entire drugs and alcohol policy and testing regime.

We instruct the General Secretary to immediately ballot our Driver Operators and Operator Instructors at all depots on the Central Line for Strike Action.

Members to be advised by email and text.
