Resolution to NEC ref Transformation:
“This branch condemns the cuts being carried out across LUL and TFL.
We note that LUL are now informing staff that they are intent on ignoring our jobs for life deal (Annex H, PPP Code of Best Practice) and have stated that people may be made compulsory redundant.
We also note that the TfL and LUL bahaviours in these discussions have fallen short of the expectations that our union has on how these matters will be negotiated. We believe that the companies have failed people on Maternity Leave or with Mental Health, among many other factors and have driven change through that will not work and will make life miserable for many that remain.
We also note the feedback of our members that attended the Mass Meeting on Transformation on the 8th May and unanimously decided to fight these cuts. We therefore ask the National Executive Committee to:
- Ballot all Engineering Members in TfL in the PMO and Engineering for strike action and action short of strike.
- Ballot all members in LUL affected by Transformation for strike action and action short of strike
- Ballot all Members in LUL Asset Operations for Strike Action and Action Short of Strike.
- The General Secretary meets with the Mayor and asks him to condemn the cuts and put a halt to transformation.
That general legal advice on the contractual nature of the PPP Code of Best Practice and particularly Annex H, is distributed to our affected branches.”
