Dear Colleague

ADEQUATE TOILET FACILITIES – BUS WORKERS

AGM Item 39 called on the union to compile medical evidence on the impact of not being able to use the toilet regularly and how this might affect workers’ ability to safely and competently drive buses.

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

We note the resolution on file and the appalling conditions our bus members have to suffer. General Secretary is instructed to take this matter up in line with the resolution. General Secretary is further instructed to write to all operators where we have recognition to establish what arrangements they have in place. General Secretary is also instructed to contact Unite to explore the idea of a joint union campaign.

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
