Talks Reveal that Assurances Amount to Nothing
RMT Demands Real Guarantees on Pay, Location & Grade
Mr Hufton's statements seemed almost reasonable in the circumstances; a genuine commitment to minimise upheaval for those affected by the impending job cuts.
RMT reps have engaged with LUL in an attempt to flesh out the promises. We quickly established that there were no guarantees at all. They simply weren't genuine.

from RMT Acting General Secretary Mick Cash
Further to my last letter, I am pleased to advise you that ACAS talks to resolve this dispute have resulted in real progress. This matter has now been considered by the General Grades Committee which has decided to suspend all industrial action in this dispute with immediate effect and therefore you are instructed to work normally.
Joint strike action by tube power control staff extended a further week to 22 July as RMT hits out at flagrant breaches of safety.
Mick Cash RMT acting general secretary said
"This dispute is over an all-out attack on the power control grade that would hit pensions, length of service and working conditions and damage the futures of this key group of tube workers. Management’s claim that they can run the system without them is both provocative and dangerous.
A number of unions have called industrial action to take place on Thursday 10th July. Public sector workers are protesting the imposition of a 1% pay rise – which would represent yet another year where their living standards decline (taking into account inflation).
Irrespective of whether the UK economy is in a sound position, the country is already and is predicted to continue registering growth. And workers must take their share – as many are expected to do.
Transport for London staff join July 10th strike action in fight over attack on pay and pensions
RMT members at Transport for London will be taking a further 24 hours of joint strike action from this Thursday morning, coinciding with widespread national industrial action in the public sector, in a dispute over an all-out attack on pay and pensions that would condemn to staff to a life of poverty in retirement.
Members have been instructed not to book on for any shifts that commence between:-
- 05.59 hours Thursday 10th July 2014 and 05.58 hours Friday 11th July 2014.
