To: The All Branches & Representatives
      All Underground and Former LT Employers

Dear Colleagues,

Tube Lines – Action on Pensions

I refer to my previous Circular NP/029/16, 22nd January 2016, following further correspondence from our branches and representatives this item was placed before the National Executive Committee on 28th January for consideration where the following decision was made:

“We note the further correspondence on file, and the views expressed by reps and branches.

In light of this, we rescind our decision No. NWW of 21st January 2016, and instruct the General Secretary not to proceed with the ballot of our members for industrial action.

We instruct the General Secretary to arrange a meeting for all Tube Lines reps with the NEC and the Lead Officer at the earliest opportunity to consider this matter. This matter should then be placed straight back before the NEC.

We also instruct the General Secretary to write to the company to demand further talks on this.

London Transport Regional Council and branches to be informed.

Members to be informed by text and email.”

I will keep you informed of developments.

Yours sincerely,


Mick Cash
General Secretary
