Metronet ballot possible: one for the road?

Following some very unsavory legal advice it now appears that jobs will be under threat when Metronet staff return to London Underground on 8th December.

This makes it possible for example that Metronet withdraw the contract from LUL and give it, let's say, to Balfour Beatty leaving the current Metronet employees jobless. The advice is provided in full underneath.

Below is a question-and-answer briefing produced by LUL management to explain pay rates for working on New Year's Eve.

LUL produced this Q&A a year ago, and the only thing that has changed since then is that there are no longer payments for Operational Duty Managers.

LUL Olympics Forum

From RMT Circular No. IR 283, November 27 2008

Dear Colleagues,

CONSULTATION AND BRIEFING FORUM FOR 2012 OLYMPICS
