STRIKE ACTION SUSPENDED

Dear colleague

ABOLITION OF NIGHT TUBE TRAIN OPERATOR GRADE - LONDON UNDERGROUND

Negotiations have taken place throughout this week at conciliation service Acas. Following today's session of talks, the company set out its latest position, which can be summarised as follows:

A commitment to undertake work on the feasibility of an opt out system for night tube duties

Engie - implementation of new contracts

SUBCONTRACTORS - ENGIE (LUL CONTRACT) (LUL/13/3)

I write to update members on the developments relating to the proposed implementation of new contracts of employment for members who had previously been self-employed and working for Engie.

With the introduction of the different parts of the IR35 legislation the vast majority of those who had been self-employed have been taken onto Engie's payroll.
