LU Olympics Working: Update from ACAS Talks
At ACAS talks today, RMT stated that we wished to discuss with LU management how to deliver the staffing arrangements needed in all grades to provide London with the transport service it needs in order to make the Olympic and Paralympic Games a success. We stated that RMT believes that this can be achieved within the parameters of existing agreements, and would explain to LU management how this could be done, expecting management to consider these proposals and give its views.
Talks began on this basis, beginning with trains, and will continue tomorrow. RMT's position remains what it has been all along: that all grades of staff are entitled to a decent financial reward for Olympics working without having to compromise our agreements. Now that LU seems willing to talk constructively on drivers' working arrangements, we are hopeful of progress.
