How The Branch and Union Works
- We have added the accounts from last year so that our members can see where their money goes.
- We have also added links so that you can access union forms and see some of the causes that we are supporting.
- We are an expanding branch and this will become an expending page, in the months ahead, but the best way to get involved in the Union is to attend a branch meeting.
UNITY IS STRENGTH
Bob Crow’s History of your Branch
The LU Engineering Branch was created in July 2006 from the merger of parts of LUL Main Works Branch and LUL Signal, Electrical and Track Branches. I was the first Secretary of the latter branch when it was created on July 29th 1993.
This was the eve of my daughter Tanya’s birthday and I remember celebrating the Branch’s opening and waking up at five a.m. the next morning with a massive hangover and my wife in labour!
That Branch brought all of the signal and track grades together as one after the company plan was opposed in 1992. The Branch was and still is the largest in the union and it is a pleasure to be the first secretary. LUL Signal, Electrical and Track and as it is now LU Engineering, has always been at the forefront of the union’s policies and it is with immense pleasure that I am still a member of it today.
