Latest from Fit for the Future Consultation

I am aware that many questions are being thrown up as LU proceeds to implement Fit for the Future without our agreement.

Ticket Offcie Closures
LU says that it has made its mind up to close every ticket ofcie regardless of all the points raised by RMT.
A list of dates for the closure of every ticket ofice (ex-Silverklink dates TBC but LU is confident they will be shut by the end of 2015) has now been put on the LU Fit for the future site and can be downloaded below.
We will continue to campaign against the closures and will work with the public to stop the company's plans.

Local BNS/Roster Consultation Starts - Preferencing and 30 Min Talks

Local BNS/Roster Consultation starts at Rickmansworth.

The first group to begin the local BNS/Roster consultation is my own, Rickmansworth.
At the initial meeting LU confirmed that they agree with our reading of the BNS methodology, which means that if a CSS/CSM on a lone worked station is utilised in the ticket hall for 3 mins in any 15 min period then there should be a second member of staff in the ticket hall at that time.

Talks Reveal that Assurances Amount to Nothing
RMT Demands Real Guarantees on Pay, Location & Grade

Mr Hufton's statements seemed almost reasonable in the circumstances; a genuine commitment to minimise upheaval for those affected by the impending job cuts.
RMT reps have engaged with LUL in an attempt to flesh out the promises. We quickly established that there were no guarantees at all. They simply weren't genuine.

Latest proposals - the facts

TSSA has sent out a misleading bulletin which says that all supervisors will get CSM jobs. This is absolutely not the case.

Here is RMT's breakdown of what is actually on offer and how it will affect each grade.

- SS1/SS2 - Guaranteed a CSM position but location and CSM grading (1 or 2) decided by LU on assessment.

- SSMF/SS3 - Guaranteed CSS post but while most SSMF/SS3s work in outer zones the CSS jobs will be mainly in Zone 1.
