From General Secretary Bob Crow
I refer to my previous letter of 28th September 2012 in support of Tube Line members’ demands for equal pension and travel benefits. As you will recall the RMT General Grades Committee requested support for an overtime ban over the weekend of 5 th to 8th October 2012. I am pleased to inform you that this action was well observed by RMT members.
So that our members’ demands are met in full the General Grades Committee has considered further action and request that you support the following action:
RMT Evidence To The Greater London Assembly Follow-up To Its Investigation Into The State Of The TubeSubmitted by admin on 12 October, 2012 - 20:30
As the largest trade union on London Underground, and the only union representing all grades on London Underground, RMT deeply regrets that no action has been taken following the GLA investigation into the state of the Tube.
In particular, RMT is deeply concerned that following the Union’s active engagement in the investigation, and the subsequent good faith with which we engaged the Olympics, that it now appears that our members are faced with an unprecedented assault.

Olympic Recognition and Reward At APD To Be Pursued Further And London Underground Administration Grades Reward To Be ReviewedSubmitted by admin on 11 October, 2012 - 17:14
We note the correspondence from London Underground Ltd concerning the industrial action by our members in the Power and Electrical Department – APD Stations Group and the response from our representative. We instruct the General Secretary to reply to LUL, explaining that this matter is not resolved to our satisfaction, and to arrange the attendance of the relevant officer at further discussions with the employer.
We note the report of our lead officer, and seek the views of our Tube Lines Company Council representatives and our LU Engineering and LU Fleet branches.
Responses are to be placed in front of us.
We note the report on file. We are appalled that Tube Lines management are attempting to impose an anti-social roster on our members.
We instruct the General Secretary to organise an immediate ballot for strikes and action short of strikes of the members involved, to the shortest practical time scale, and to send a personal letter to all those being balloted urging them strongly to vote Yes to both questions.
Bob Crow Explains Tube Lines Pensions And Travel Concessions Dispute As Members Take Industrial ActionSubmitted by admin on 5 October, 2012 - 02:23
From RMT General Secretary Bob Crow
I write to regarding those Tube Lines employees who are being denied access to TfL Pension Fund (TfLPF) and the same travel facilities as other TfL workers. As you will be aware earlier this year union members employed by Tube Lines were balloted for pension and travel equality and as a result returned a massive yes vote in support of industrial action.
it is clear that management are not going to move on pensions or address the claim in full on travel. I therefore wish to inform you that with effect from 17.30 hours Friday 5th October 2012 until 05.30 hours Monday 8th October 2012 that the RMT General Grades Committee has instructed Tube Lines members not to work any overtime.
We note the report from our LT Regional Council train grades committee. We welcome the committee’s organising efforts, and instruct the General Secretary to offer assistance and resources.
We note the comments concerning which grades may be used to test driverless trains. We instruct the General Secretary to obtain a further, detailed report on this, and to ensure that membership data for all LUL train grades is accurate and up-to-date should we need to hold a ballot for industrial action.
