Dear Mr. Gardiner,

RATES OF PAY AND CONDITIONS OF SERVICE 2002

I write further to your letter dated 27 September 2002 to Bob Crow in respect of the above.

We are prepared to meet and talk with you over all aspects of this dispute, and are willing to go to independent arbitration or mediation as a means to resolve this dispute.

Whilst we remain committed to seeking a way forward through mediation, it appears that London Underground, under the instruction of your political masters, is intent on destroying relations between the employer and its employees, and further compounding the misery of London’s travelling public.

Though we are actively considering the use of independent arbitration to resolve this dispute, whether or not you choose to attend and genuinely participate, is a matter for your own conscience. 

We would hope that you would not pass up this opportunity to help resolve this matter on behalf of all parties.

Accordingly, we enclose a copy of a letter sent to ACAS on behalf of ASLEF and RMT asking them to nominate a series of dates for future arbitration meetings. We sincerely hope that you are able to attend these meetings and play a genuine rôle in seeking a resolution to this dispute.

I hope the above is of some assistance and I look forward to hearing from you.

Yours sincerely,


M D RIX
General Secretary
