Industrial action

When negotiations fail, RMT members take action

London Bridge 3 picket line video

Reel News has interviewed the RMT's London Transport Regional Organiser John Leach and the National Executive Commitee officer Andy Littlechild on the succesful picket Line at London Bridge. RMT members at the station have been on strike following the sacking of Lee Cornell and disciplinary actions taken against two others who were defending themselves having been assaulted by a fare dodging passanger.

Tube strike ballot to be held in defense of London Bridge 3

In light of the deplorable treatment of our stations staff members; Brothers Siussi 52 weeks final warning, Sharp 52 weeks final warning, along with Cornel’s summary dismissal and his failed appeal that was an utter miscarriage of justice; We instruct the General Secretary to ballot all grades/members (CSA1, CSA2, CSS, CSM’s & RCI’s but excluding LU Staff Trainers at Ashfield House) based in all station areas and Cover Groups on London Underground for strike action and actions short of a strike.

BREAKDOWN IN INDUSTRIAL RELATIONS, TRAIN OPERATORS, PICCADILLY LINE – LONDON UNDERGROUND (LUL/14/2)

27/03/17

Further to my previous Circular (IR/377/16, 6th December 2016), in which I advised that the NEC had taken the decision to cancel the planned strike action as the major issues of this dispute had been ceded by management and were therefore resolved, the following resolution has now been received from Piccadilly & District West Branch:-

Tube worker sacked for going to the aid of a pregnant colleague who was being assaulted

London Underground : are you listening? We are going to strike unless you reinstate Lee Cornell.

Lee Cornell is a CSA at London Bridge with over 10 years exemplary service.
He is a dedicated, honest and proactive member of staff.

His crime was to go to assist a pregnant member of staff who had been physically assaulted by a fare evader.
The person who abused and assaulted Kirsty Watts then punched Lee twice and stole his glasses.
