We note the correspondence from London Underground Ltd. We further note the report from our Regional Organiser and the view of our representatives that this is the basis of a settlement of our dispute.

We therefore will not take strike action under the current mandate. We remain vigilant on all the issues that formed part of this dispute, and note that a follow-up meeting will be held.

RMT Suspends Piccadilly line Strike as Significant Progress is Made

We note the report from our Regional Organiser and the progress made in talks, and that London Underground Ltd has agreed to extend the period of our ballot mandate by 28 days. We note that the R.O. and the majority of representatives believe that sufficient progress has been made to suspend the industrial action and we therefore instruct the General Secretary to immediately advise the company and our members that the strike action due to begin at 12:00 on Wednesday 4 December 2013 is suspended.

Finsbury Park Branch Newsletter - Every Job Matters

Dear Finsbury Park Branch Member,

As you are no doubt aware LUL has announced a massive attack on the jobs and conditions of mainly station based grades.

This is being done due to the massive budget cuts announced by Central government to the TfL budget mainly due to the actions of a handful of people in the banking sector some years ago.

They are asking us to pay through our jobs and conditions for their mistakes and this is not acceptable.

Investigation Demanded After Train Doors Open In Tunnel

Train

Tube Union RMT today demanded a full investigation after it was revealed that the doors opened between stations on a packed Piccadilly Line train heading towards Heathrow on Sunday afternoon. Fortunately, the driver was alerted to the fault by a signal in the cab and was able to bring the train to a halt and ensure the safety of all passengers. The seriousness of the incident is reinforced by the fact that a baby in a buggy was close to the door that partially opened at the time.

Arnos Grove Annual Leave Issue Could Lead To Dispute

We note the resolution from our Finsbury Park branch and share its concerns at London Underground Ltd's refusal to honour annual leave commitments and abide by the established procedure. Accordingly, we instruct the General Secretary to write to LUL calling on it to ensure that its local management at Arnos Grove depot grant odd days leave and agree to allow members to carry over and use annual leave accrued from previous years. The letter is also to warn LUL that failure to respond fully to our request will bring our unions into dispute with the company over this issue.
