As members will be aware from my previous Circular (IR/022/15, 21st January 2015), preparations are underway to organise a meeting of Reps and Activists to discuss the possibility of further industrial action on London Underground in relation to defending jobs, services and conditions and to discuss the report back from our Lead Officer on the progress of talks on Every Job Matters.
Further to my previous Circular (IR/034/15, 29th January 2015) the ballot for strike action has concluded and members are congratulated for returning a ‘yes’ vote and for the excellent support shown despite a massive campaign of misinformation and smears mounted by LU and TfL bosses and the media.
This morning myself and senior RMT Functional council reps attended a special meeting of the LUL company council to deal with this year’s pay claim.
LUL made the first offer of this pay round, we have agreed to go back tomorrow at 1000 to continue the discussion .
The offer is a two year deal.

This week, management are publishing the draft Business Needs Schematics (BNS) and rosters for Fit for the Future - Stations. These are being presented to your union reps at a local ('level one') meeting, and reps will then consult you and take your views back to a feedback meeting.
The BNS shows where management think staff are needed on the station.
The roster shows the days, hours and rest days that staff are expected to follow.
Further to my previous correspondence advising you of the result of the ballot, members are congratulated for returning a ‘yes’ vote for strike action and for the excellent support shown by you and your colleagues despite a massive campaign of misinformation and smears mounted by LU and TfL bosses and the media.
This is the council of executive report from our London Transport C of E member John Reid. For full details please try and attend regional council, your branch or speak to your rep.
Defend Noel Roberts or you could be next
Alex McGuigan was sacked following a flawed alcohol test which we believe resulted in a false result. We balloted for industrial action to defend Alex which resulted in a yes vote for strike.
There are lots of ways that you can help Alex get his job back, and help the union ensure that alcohol testing is fair and robust for all of us on London Underground.
