RMT Executive responds to Finsbury Park branch Night Tube motion

Subject: LONDON UNDERGROUND – NIGHT TUBE SAFETY

We note the resolution from our Finsbury Park Branch regarding the unsatisfactory treatment of our members, the failure of the company to adhere to their agreements and the resulting call for a ballot for industrial action, and refer this matter into our Southern Sub Committee for examination and report.

Relevant Branches and the London Transport Regional Council to be advised.

RMT asks management to reconsider offer to leapfrogged Night Tube drivers

UPDATE ON LEAP-FROGGED DRIVERS DIRECTORS MEETING.

Today the RMT and ASLEF met with Management concerning the leap-frogged drivers situation.

Management put a proposal that all 23 affected leap-frogged drivers would receive a days pay for every week that they were leap-frogged.

Management said that this was a "gratis payment" as the leap-frogged drivers did not work full-time during this period and it would be unfair to pay them for work that they never did.

Night Tube and London Overground

On 15 September, TfL announced a restructuring of London Overground to reduce staff, close ticket offices, and run overnight service. This is on top of plans already afoot to withdraw Overground staff from Underground stations outside weekday peak hours.

These proposals will obviously have an impact on London Underground stations which interchange with London Overground, so RMT is insisting to LUL that it tells the union the details and discusses potential issues. Make sure that you talk to your RMT rep or go to your branch meeting to voice your concerns.

Night Tube staff - Don't face management alone: use your union rep!

Called to a Local Disciplinary Interview? Or a case conference? Got a meeting with management to discuss your Flexible Working application? Or your grievance? Make sure that an RMT representative comes with you!

Sometimes, Night Tube staff think that the union can not provide them with a representative because of Night Tube working hours. But the union can and will.

Night Tube crisis looms on Piccadilly Line

TUBE UNION RMT warned today that the Night Tube on the Piccadilly line is in crisis with a serious lack of trained train operators available to run the service.

RMT has been informed that the amount of drivers available to run the Mayor’s flagship Night Tube service on the Piccadilly Line is now so low that last weekend saw only 7 trains running instead of the normal 22 – a near reduction of 70%. The union understands that the situation could continue until Christmas.

Drivers' union RMT wins again for Night Tube train ops

RMT announces victory for justice over Night Tube drivers’ career progression.

TUBE UNION RMT has called off strike action and heralded a victory for justice for Night Tube drivers as LUL agreed to end the practice of preventing them from moving into vacant full-time positions for a period of at least 18 months. All other staff, including part-time Night Tube Station Staff had been eligible to apply, but Night Tube Train Operators were not.
