RMT Has Serious Concerns Despite 2012 Pay Rise Offer From TFL Being Slightly Improved
We note the revised pay offer from Transport for London. Although this does contain some improvements on the original offer, RMT representatives continue to have serious concerns, including:
- the maximum of 5% on next year’s pay rise, which sets a bad precedent and would leave our members facing a pay cut should RPI be higher than this;
- the additional 0.5% for 2013 being dependant on acceptance of a new Performance- Related Pay scheme
- that the 75% Rail Reimbursement Scheme continues to be renewed within pay deals rather than made permanent
- that the written offer from management appears to be not the same as the offer made at the last pay talks.
We instruct the General Secretary to arrange a meeting of all our representatives on TfL with GGC members and the lead officer at Unity House on or before 5 November, and to place a report of this meeting in front of us.
We further instruct the General Secretary to share our concerns with the other TfL trade unions and to report their responses to the meeting with our representatives.
London Transport Regional Council and branches to be advised.
