News, reports and information for RMT members who work for London Underground Ltd
As members will be aware from my previous Circular (IR/022/15, 21st January 2015), preparations are underway to organise a meeting of Reps and Activists to discuss the possibility of further industrial action on London Underground in relation to defending jobs, services and conditions and to discuss the report back from our Lead Officer on the progress of talks on Every Job Matters.
Further to my previous Circular (IR/034/15, 29th January 2015) the ballot for strike action has concluded and members are congratulated for returning a ‘yes’ vote and for the excellent support shown despite a massive campaign of misinformation and smears mounted by LU and TfL bosses and the media.
This morning myself and senior RMT Functional council reps attended a special meeting of the LUL company council to deal with this year’s pay claim.
LUL made the first offer of this pay round, we have agreed to go back tomorrow at 1000 to continue the discussion .
The offer is a two year deal.
2015 = 0.5%
In return for and for future operation of NIGHT TUBE a Non consolidated (one off payment) for all COO staff and CPD Operational staff, to be paid at two stages £250 twice = £500 in total.
And that’s it!
Further to my previous correspondence advising you of the result of the ballot, members are congratulated for returning a ‘yes’ vote for strike action and for the excellent support shown by you and your colleagues despite a massive campaign of misinformation and smears mounted by LU and TfL bosses and the media.
This is the council of executive report from our London Transport C of E member John Reid. For full details please try and attend regional council, your branch or speak to your rep.
Defend Noel Roberts or you could be next
Alex McGuigan was sacked following a flawed alcohol test which we believe resulted in a false result. We balloted for industrial action to defend Alex which resulted in a yes vote for strike.
There are lots of ways that you can help Alex get his job back, and help the union ensure that alcohol testing is fair and robust for all of us on London Underground.

- Come along and join us on February 25th; 8am to 10am and 4pm to 6pm
RMT Bakerloo Line activists, Hands Off London Transport and community groups, will be taking the fight against staff cuts and the closure of tube ticket offices to the public next Wednesday – 25th February - between 8am and 10am and 4pm and 6pm hours with leafleting and petition signing outside Edgware Road (Bakerloo Line) station.
February issue of East Ham Branch newsletter
RMT Piccadilly and District West Branch and 'Hands Off London Transport' will be demonstrating and leafleting outside of Hounslow West station on Wednesday morning from 7 to 9 am.
London underground wants to close all ticket offices and cut around 850 jobs in a move which will see tube services reduced especially for those who need assistance most, and yet more relatively decent jobs lost in London.
Please join us as we send a message to London Underground bosses and Tory mayor Boris Johnson that we don't want austerity to destroy the tube.
