TfL Action Short of Strike - Template Letter - Jan 2016

11 January 2016

Below is a Word document and text of a template letter that TSSA members should send to their line manager to inform them that they are engaged in action short of strike and will not be participating in their personal P&D process.

[Insert date]

To: [insert name of manager]

I am a TSSA member taking part in lawful industrial action relating to a legitimate trade dispute at TfL.

I am entitled to participate in lawful action without recrimination from my employer.

As part of the industrial action short of strike notice, TSSA has instructed members:

§ Not to buddy or mentor agency staff within Customer Experience roles

§ Not to work beyond their contractual hours. This includes all non-contractual overtime, refusing out of hours phone calls, taking full meal breaks at the correct time and VDU breaks from the computer.

§ Not to volunteer for Travel Ambassador duties or any other duties outside their Job Description

§ Not to participate in my personal Performance and Development Review process

I would be grateful if you would refrain from making further requests which conflict with the industrial action I am taking.

I realise that this action may cause you difficulties, and is not something that my Union or I embark upon lightly.

The industrial action will be called off if TfL negotiate a reasonable settlement to the ongoing dispute regarding Pay for Performance. I hope that you can use any influence you have to encourage the Leadership Team to engage with my TSSA in Representatives in a meaningful sense.
