News, reports and information for RMT members who work for London Underground Ltd
We note the correspondence from London Underground Ltd, and welcome the company's agreement to provide thermal under trousers. We believe that this is a significant victory for this union, which London Underground staff will welcome.
This has been achieved through the persistent efforts of our representatives - especially our Uniform Consultative Committee representatives and our Victoria Line North stations health and safety representative - and through demonstrating the strength of feeling of our members on this important issue of workplace comfort and safety.
The following petitions from various groups are all calling for London Underground ticket offices to be protected.
