Dear Colleague,

TFL PENSION FUND - INDEPENDENT REVIEW

I refer to my previous correspondence, 2Oth December 2021, you will be aware that Sir Brendan Barber the head of the Review Commission looking into the TfL Pension Fund submitted the final report on 28th March 2022.

Strikes and opposition to pension cuts have rocked management’s timetable for so-called reform of our pensions. When Brendon Barber took on the review of the TfL pension fund the terms of reference said he would refine proposals and outline a timetable for implementation by 31 March 2022. 

Video: Jared Wood reminds members to return ballot papers

RMT National Executive Council member Jared Wood reminds members of the importance to return ballot papers in our dispute to defend jobs, pensions and working conditions.

Jared says "Get your ballot paper back. Once we've done that the boot will be on the other foot. We will have a strike mandate and then TfL, the mayor and our managers will have to listen to us"

 

Leaflet: Your TFL Pension is fully funded, solvent and healthy

Your TFL Pension is fully funded, solvent and healthy.

There is no case for change.

Brendan Barber, chair of the ongoing ‘Independent Review’ claims the purpose of the review is to move TFL’s pension arrangements into a ‘financially sustainable position’.

Does this mean the fund is in trouble?

No. Far from it.

Vote YES to defend your pension

Dear Colleague,

TFL PENSION FUND - INDEPENDENT REVIEW

You need to vote YES in the ballot to defend your pension. We can't let the Government and TfL leave you in poverty when you retire.

I refer to my previous email of 10th November 2021, you will now be aware that the RMT have formally informed TfL management that we are now in dispute with them over jobs, pensions and working conditions and as a result over 10,000 of our members across LUL and TfL are currently being balloted for industrial action.

Poster for TfL/LU workplaces: vote yes

Please display this poster in your London Underground / TfL workplace to encourage members to vote yes in our dispute to defend jobs, pensions & agreements.

Ballot papers went out from the Monday 13th of December. If you don't have yours by today (20th December) please request a new one either by emailing info@rmt.org.uk or speaking to your local rep.
