RMT Accepts 4 Year Pay Deal and will Return to Issue of Working Hours ASAP

A discussion between RMT IR and H&S staff side secretaries/leads took place this morning. Following this meeting the NEC discussed LUL's current 4-Year pay offer. The NEC has instructed the General Secretary to inform LUL that we accept the offer. London Underground has repeated that they remain committed to reviewing working hours and we will return to this issue ASAP.

Covid 19 - We will provide an essential service but we must be protected & respected

ABM Cleaners Victory

Winning sick pay at the full shift rate for ABM cleaners isolating or sick with Covid 19 is an important safeguard for those members and for everyone working on our tube network. But there are other sub-contractors and self-employed workers working on the tube network and they need the same protection.

When RMT met LUL directors on 16/3/20 we put a number of demands to them. This included the need for sick pay for cleaners but also many other points.

New leaflet: Vote Yes for strike action on pay & conditions

The NEC has taken the decision to ballot all LUL members over pay & conditions.

We will not accept an either/or offer that asks us to chose between protecting our pay or addressing fatigue and working hours.

Please circulate this new leaflet. There are printed copies available at Unity House from Thursday 5 March. Please ensure every workplace has copies in the mess rooms and on notice boards.

East Ham Branch demand an end to violent assaults at work. Support the action

Great work by the local reps and the East Ham Branch
In the wake of unprecedented violence against staff on LUL on the east end of the district line our comrades put on industrial action to say no more
We are not prepared to accept being assaulted at work 
The incident at West Ham vindicated this position 
Attacks on our members are unacceptable 
If LU do not resolve to put this right we are prepared to escalate our action
The attacks on our members across the combine must mark the end of lone working 

When off sick here’s our advice: don’t call me I’ll call you!

 

An agreement from SFC dated 2005

Whilst LUL managers may deny these agreements there’s no doubt they exist.

They just don’t like sharing.

The SFC 2019 have, at the request of our reps, re-issued the following advice.

It’s important we make them stick to agreements made with the RMT
