Tube Driver's Charter

train-5.jpg

This is the RMT’s updated version of the charter for London Underground train drivers. It lists our key demands and ‘lines in the sand’ – issues which we see as crucial to achieve or defend for those members working in the grade of train driver. Several of these issues are also essential for other London Underground grades and transport workers in all industries.

The charter had an official launch with Acting General Secretary Mick Cash, Trains Functional Rep Dean O'Hanlon, London Transport Executive member Brian Munro and Executive member Del Marr all speaking at the event.

All drivers are invited to the launch of the London Underground Drivers’ Charter. With the prospect of
attacks on us in the form of enforced “flexibility”, deskilling and driverless trains it is essential that we take a
stand to protect our grade.

The London Mayor and the Government are whipping up a frenzy of anti-union feeling and foremost in their sights are tube drivers – it’s time to defend ourselves before it’s too late!

London Underground Driverless Trains Advert

London Underground has begun the process for the purchase of driverless trains. This ‘Periodic Notice’ from early March, for trains capable of ‘unattended operation’ is taken from the Official Journal of the European Union. A Periodic Notice “provides advance information about works, supplies or service contracts that, at the beginning of the budgetary year, the contracting authority intends to award during the next 12 months.”

The RMT has already declared itself in dispute over the issue of driverless trains.

Station by Station Review: Member Feedback

RMT, London Underground and other unions are involved in ongoing talks regarding 'Fit for the Future: Stations' plans. Our succesful industrial action has secured further and more detailed talks which include a station by station review. This could be a positive step but tube bosses propose to carry it out in a very short amount of time.

RMT Lays Out Future Of Every Job Matters Dispute

Hands up
  • LU crumbled and acceded to critical demands placed on them by this union
  • Union’s position remains the same: no job cuts, no ticket office closures and no to austerity on London’s Underground.
  • Union is particularly concerned on the statements made by LU Directors that they will be coming for our member’s pensions.
  • Strike pay to be discussed

Dear Colleagues,

STRIKE ACTION SUSPENDED – MEMBERS INSTRUCTED TO WORK NORMALLY

EVERY JOB MATTERS – DEFENDING JOBS ON LONDON UNDERGROUND

I wrote to you on Friday advising you that your negotiators believed that some progress had been made, but the company at the last minute decided to impose pre-conditions, including RMT calling off strike action and totally withdrawing from the current dispute, this would have meant a new ballot being required for any further industrial action.
