Unfilled Revenue Vacancies Unacceptable Says RMT

We note the report from our Regional Organiser, and the verbal report from our LUL Revenue Control representatives that a significant number of vacancies remain unfilled. This is an unacceptable situation, as it is increasing our members’ workload, blocking promotion and transfer, and denying job opportunities at a time of high unemployment.

We instruct the General Secretary to obtain a report from our representatives and place this in front of us within 28 days.

We note the report from our lead officer and branch secretary. We note that the individual cases are now concluded.

We reaffirm our insistence that all duties associated with protection should be carried out by directly-employed staff, and are alarmed at the apparent backtracking by the company on this matter.

We instruct the General Secretary to ensure that this is pursued through the machinery of negotiation, and also to table this for discussion at the next meeting of the London Underground Briefing Forum.

We note the correspondence from London Underground Ltd and the report from our Regional Organiser. It is clear that the company fully intends to impose mobile station supervision at seven stations, that this will lead to a further extension of this practice, and that it will not commit to round-the-clock station supervision.

RMT Prepare For Possible Industrial Action Over Flash & Dash Detrainments

We note the report from our Regional Organiser and the correspondence from London Underground Ltd. Although the experience of the last two years has proved beyond any doubt that detrainment is only safe and effective when carried out by staff on the platform, the company appears to be preparing to make a fresh attempt to withdraw these staff. It seems again to be attempting to use some technical devices as a pretext to return to the ‘flash and dash’ procedure, which endangers passengers and is held in contempt by our members.

Tube Bosses Avoid Response To RMT Demand On Detrainment Staff

We note the reply from London Underground Ltd regarding inner inter-car barriers. We note that this letter does not address the request in our previous letter for an assurance that LUL has abandoned all plans to remove detrainment staff from the Central Line (or any other line) and all plans to reduce the number of staff on its stations. We do not accept that this can wait until after the Formal Investigation Report, and instruct the General Secretary to write to LUL again specifically on this matter, insisting on a reply, which is to be placed in front of us.
