Abstract: Using methods developed by W. Singer and J. P. May, we describe a systematic approach to showing that many spectral sequences, determined by a filtration on a complex whose homology has an action of operations, possess a compatible action of the same operations. As a consequence, we obtain W. Singer's result for Steenrod operations on Serre spectral sequence and extend A. Bahri's action of Dyer-Lashof operations on the second quadrant Eilenberg-Moore spectral sequence.
