FIT OR NOT FIT THAT IS THE QUESTION!!
Fitness for work does not seem to bother London Underground these days. Whether you are fit doesn’t matter, management are now medically terminating you at a case conference there and then even if you are at work doing your job. In one case that happened only a few weeks ago, the driver came to work and booked on ready to do her duty, then went in for a normal case conference and within an hour and half of that case conference she had been medically terminated there and then.

LUL’s secret plans for all functions of LU Maintenance (former Metronet) contain the most offensive views of staff, and lay out a strategy of first making detailed management preparations, before intentionally drawing the unions into a manufactured dispute; leading them into a tactical strike with pre-arranged government support to defeat the tube unions (RMT!).

London Underground has just announced their intention of slashing hundreds of station staff jobs. LU is looking to cut station numbers to the bare minimum at many locations.
How does this affect me as a driver I hear you ask? Well these job cuts and the associated Operational Effectiveness Programme (OEP) represent the biggest changes to the role of driver since the introduction of OPO. When, incidentally, we were promised that there would always be station staff on site to assist should they be required.

The final meeting of the Operational Managers Review took place to further discuss the Grade Progression. At the end of the meeting TSSA and BTOG decided they would offer it up to their members with a recommendation of acceptance (ASLEF were not represented at this important meeting). The RMT rejected it and intend to do so at the next Company Council Feb 17th.

The RMT have today (03 Feb 2010) rejected the draft proposal of the Duty Manager Grade Progression.
We cannot accept that some of our members will have their pay frozen with example of how this would work based on a 3% (hopefully more) cost of living increase below. Year 1: £45,000 frozen + 3% = £1,350 paid in lump sum Year 2: £45,000 frozen + 3% cost of living rise = £1,350 paid in lump sum
