Every Job Matters – Defending Jobs on London Underground

Further to previous correspondence on the above matter, despite months of discussions between your union and London Underground, it remains the case that management are hell-bent on carrying out a programme of major job cuts, hitting thousands of RMT members with the prospect of downgrading with a resulting loss of salary and closing every ticket office by the end of 2015.

Loose Concrete On Track Causes Travel Chaos

RMT called for an end to job cuts today (17th Sept) following travel chaos during the rush hour this morning after a large piece of concrete fell off the trackside wall onto the track between Kings Cross and Farringdon last night.
The debris fouled the running rails and electric traction current rails. Fortunately power was switched off and a track worker saw this in time and ensured that trains did not run.

If the track worker hadn’t spotted the debris then power would have been switched on as normal and a potential disaster could have occurred if trains had run.

RMT Reaction To German Uber Ban

Taxi

Taxi union RMT reaction to news that German courts have banned the Uber App.

Mick Cash, RMT Acting General Secretary, said

“This is an important and significant development. The undermining of the Private Hire Laws by apps such as Uber is just another attempt to casualise and weaken the professional and safe licensed taxi trade and the long-established regulations around the right to ply for hire, coming after the exposure of the illegal ranks around London and the drive to destroy the airport services.

Alex McGuigan: The Facts

alex.png
  1. Alex was the subject of a random D&A test on June 17th which returned a positive result for alcohol in the breath. This was despite Alex complying with LUL guidelines on alcohol consumption.
  2. Alex informed the tester that he suffers from type 2 diabetes and is prescribed Metformin to manage the condition. It is a matter of fact that sufferers of type 2 diabetes can give false positive readings.
  3. Alex hadn't eaten any food for 19 hours before the test. It is a matter of fact that people fasting, or on certain diets, can give false positive readings.
