Dear RMT members,
As you will know we are balloting the entire membership in LUL over the issues of pay and Night Tube. As always we are available for talks . Today LUL have written to us and said that they would like to recommence the talks next week at ACAS on the issue of pay and night tube. I am putting together our negotiating team, representing all grades across the company and we will attend any meetings that are called - as we always do.

UNITY IS STRENGTH – SUPPORT YOUR UNION
On June 11th LUL stated that they want a wage settlement, including Night Tube, which is “affordable, fair and sustainable.” This is a change from early April when they said they wanted a settlement which was “affordable, sustainable and fair.” So in all this time the only real change to the offer from LUL has been in the order of the words.
- Ballot papers for Pay & Night Tube industrial action will be sent out to you all on Tuesday 16th June and the closing date for this ballot will be Tuesday 30th June 2015.
- All LUL unions are in dispute.
- A huge ‘YES’ vote from you and your colleagues in favour of taking industrial action is crucial to make sure the Company continues discussions with RMT and meets our demands for a fair deal.
