What the Regional Council is doing to improve RMT organisation on London Transport, to recruit, retain and involve members

Piccadilly Reps Report July 2015

Well I am pleased to say that my area is fantastically strong. We REPs have recruited every single new person to the Piccadilly Circus group. Fixed term as well. 12 members in the last month.

Amazing, it's really easy for you to use your iPad to recruit. Giving someone a paper membership application is so last year. I do it on my personal iPad. Takes 5 minutes.

RMT fight back against the onslaught of anti worker policies

LTRC are organising a weeks recruitment activity June 7 - 13 across all of our region.
We have asked full time officers to try to make part of these days.

We are asking all branches to participate in this important activity.

LUL have today announced their intention to press ahead with night tube for drivers
Station staff have already been given their rosters.
Fleet and engineering to follow.
Service control are also being lined up.

One day training course - recruitment/retention & organising. May 11 & June 1

One day course on recruitment,retention & organising.

As you know the Senior AGS Steve Hedley has made mapping of local areas a focus of RMT recruitment/retention.
It would be hugely beneficial if local reps are able to take up the opportunity to participate on these courses.
We intend to run courses throughout the year and are hoping all local reps/activists are able to take part.
Paid release from the employer should be requested as we have a statutory right for paid training.
Should they refuse the RMT will cover loss of earnings.

The disgraceful treatment of employees continues unabated.

The disgraceful treatment of employees continues unabated.

Our cleaners all over the combine are having to contend with bullying and intimidating managers who routinely abuse agreed policies and procedures including;

• Grievances unheard
• pay illegally deducted
• pay slips not provided
• victimisation
• race discrimination
• targeting of RMT trade union reps for their trade union activities.
