Members are also instructed to take action short of a strike by doing: no work of any kind in a section 15 possession, and by taking meal breaks as per agreements.
I urge you all to support this action and demand that the Company takes action to resolve the issues at the heart of this dispute.
The Lead Officer has also raised concerns over staff in Service Control and similar grades that these staff are faced with additional workloads and duties due to the imposition of the Section 15 Possession arrangements and the National Executive Committee have instructed that we inform LUL that staff in these grades are also in dispute with the company and will be balloted for industrial action.
STAND FIRM TOGETHER & SUPPORT THE ACTION
SUPPORT YOUR UNION
I will keep you informed of all further developments. Please bring the contents of this circular to the attention of all relevant members.
