We note the report from the Lead Officer regarding the proposal from management.

We congratulate our Members, Negotiations Team, Lead Officer and both Jubilee Line Branches on fighting for and achieving this proposal from the company that addresses the issues of the dispute by returning the rest days management took away as a consequence of their imposed roster which will now be returned under our current agreements.
