Dear Colleague

SECTION 15 POSSESSIONS

Further to Head Office Circular NP/032/16, 28th January 2016, a report from the Regional Organiser and a letter from management with a proposal to resolve the dispute has been considered by the National Executive Committee. The NEC have adopted the following Decision:

 

Further to our Decision No.NWW of 28th January, we note the report from the Regional Organiser, and the letter from LUL on behalf of both LUL and Tubelines.

 

We accept the proposals from the management that they will suspend all Section 15 Possessions and return to the safe system of work from this Friday for two weeks. We note that further talks are planned.

 

We therefore suspend our instruction to members not to book on for shifts between 06:30 Friday 12th February 2016 and 06:29 on Saturday 13th February 2016.

 

We maintain our instruction to these members to take action short of a strike by doing no working of any kind in a section 15 Possession, and by taking meal breaks as per agreements.

 

We continue with the ballot for action of our Service Control Grades over the imposition of Section 15 Protection.

 

London Transport Regional Council and Branches to be advised. Members to be advised by text and e-mail.

 

I am acting on these instructions.

 

 

I will keep you informed of all further developments. Please bring the contents of this circular to the attention of all relevant members.

 

Yours sincerely

 

Mick Cash

General Secretary
