Dear Colleague
ASSAULTS ON MEMBERS - BUS WORKERS

AGM Item 38 called on the union to contact all bus operators to establish that CCTV equipment is properly maintained and the resulting evidence is used to prosecute people who have assaulted our members. It also called upon the union to campaign with the police, local authorities and the bus operators to work together to tackle the scourge of physical attacks on bus workers.

The National Executive Committee have noted and adopted the following report of their Health and Safety Sub-committee:

We note the recommendation made in AGM 37 and instruct the General Secretary to link these files.

Branches and Regional Councils be advised.

I am acting in accordance with this instruction. Please bring the contents of this circular to the attention of relevant members.

Yours sincerely
 
Mick Cash
General Secretary
