LUL Revenue Control
Following the rock-solid strike action taken by RMT tube station members on the 8th and 9th of January the union today confirmed a new phase of action from the 6th of February.
The union’s executive has agreed, following extensive consultation with reps across the tube network, that further, escalated strike action will be called from Monday 6th February unless London Underground meet RMT’s reasonable demands on station staffing and safety.
Tube staff out in force across the network in fight for jobs and safety
General Secretary Mick Cash said; "Our members are out in force across London Underground this morning in the fight for jobs and safety. The strike action is being solidly supported on every line, at every station and on picket lines right across the Tube network.
"This action has been forced on us by savage cuts to jobs that have reduced London Underground to an under-staffed death trap at a time of heightened security and safety alert.
LUL Station Staffing & Safety Arrangements , Post Implementation of Fit for the Future. ACAS Update Thursday 5th January 2017
Dear RMT Members,
Today myself and senior RMT reps, The TSSA and LUL met at ACAS for the second day on the above dispute.
Despite my request yesterday to make a radically improved offer and a whole day of conciliation at ACAS no improvements were forthcoming.
LUL have stated they want to return tomorrow for talks, and we of course are available. If there are developments I will report back.
Following last month’s ballot result in favour of taking industrial action, RMT’s National Executive Committee has taken the decision to call action and instructs ALL LUL STATION & REVENUE members:
EVERY JOB MATTERS – DEFENDING JOBS ON LONDON UNDERGROUND (LUL/14/5)
Further to my previous Circular (IR/175/16, 22nd June 2016), members will recall the NEC decision to organise a Stations & Revenue Reps to discuss industrial action following the implementation of the “Fit for the Future” programme which is having a detrimental effect of members working lives with serious implications for their work-life balance. The arrangements for this meeting have now been finalised and are as follows:-
In the wake of figures released yesterday by the Labour Group on the GLA showing that fare evasion on London Underground has rocketed by over 200%, tube union RMT revealed today that, as well as closing ticket offices, LU has reduced revenue inspectors by more than a third with more cuts to come.
TRANSFER POLICY – LONDON UNDERGROUND (LUL/16/2)
Further to my previous Circular (IR/124/15, 14th May 2015), the Lead Officer has discussed the legal findings with the Stations and Revenue Functional Council Secretary and advised that LUL’s proposals for the T&P have not changed and remain unacceptable. The Company still want to remove the right to nominate for promotion to grades for which a licence is held. They are also proposing to remove payment for Higher Grade Working until three consecutive shifts have been worked.
There is a new rule going live on May 4th, OSN 118. This would see trains running in passenger services with no direct contact the controller. This is obviously an unacceptable risk to the RMT.
We have had various meetings with LU on this matter and we have continually objected to its introduction. As LU were intent on imposing this on us we have contacted our Head Office with a view to escalating the matter. You will be hearing from our union top brass in due course on this matter.
