Another RMT victory for ABM cleaner members

Dear member,

This afternoon we met with the Deputy Mayor of London.

The Deputy Mayor has advised me that the removal of contractual sick pay for the ex Vinci TUPED into ABM cleaners ( who had been in receipt of it before the TUPE) has been reversed. This clear injustice has been rectified by the determined effort and activities of the RMT.

We now of course will redouble our efforts and continue the fight for all ABM cleaners to recieve proper Sick pay / Travel benefits / better pensions and pay as well as justice at work.

ISS DLR members to take further action against belligerent bosses


Our ISS members on the DLR KAD contract have taken firm strike action aimed at bringing the company to the negotiations table to resolve this issue; however ISS are belligerently refusing to come to terms with this union.

Therefore; given the lack of response by ISS management to the recent strike, we instruct our ISS members on the Docklands Light Railway: Strike Action

Stations Admin Transformation Update

Your reps have had a response from London Underground on the counter-proposal we submitted on your behalf. We believe that the counter-proposal was robust and addressed all of the key points raised by management, as well as protecting the fundamental principle of not splitting the admin grade. However, the company have rejected this proposal entirely and now plan to impose their original business case. This is the response we received from LU 

Senior Manager Admin Transformation Update

Your MATS reps met with London Underground last week for the latest consultation meeting. There has been some progress in this work stream. The company have put in extra ADCO jobs, meaning that all ADCOs will now be mapped and there will be vacancies at that grade.

The company are also going to open Voluntary Severance for Support Managers.

Asset Operations Transformation Update

Your MATS reps met with London Underground last week for the latest consultation meeting. Again the company deviated from the agenda proposed by your reps and we made little progress. It was a three hour meeting, with the first two hours spent talking about the proposed TUPE of 3 Bombardier staff into London Underground. LU are bringing these people into the company and including one of them ‘in scope’ for Transformation. We do not agree with this and believe that existing staff should not be put at risk by somebody new coming into the company.
