RMT demands ABM's 'Project Lean' is stopped

21st June 2023

Dear RMT Member,


I have received reports from your RMT Reps that ABM are calling you into meetings where members feel pressurized into accepting more work at more locations. This is taking place as part of a review of responsibilities and work locations which the Company is calling ‘Project Lean’.

This matter was raised at a meeting with ABM and your Reps were told that any changes to working arrangements would be discussed with the Union but this has not happened. I have now written to the Company demanding that work on ‘Project Lean’, including meetings with members, is stopped immediately and that an urgent meeting is arranged to discuss this matter with your RMT Lead Officer.

If you are called into a meeting please let your RMT Rep know or call the RMT Helpline on 0800 376 3706. Also, if ABM ask you to volunteer to do more work or work at more locations you should not agree to this request.

I will keep you advised of all further developments.

Yours sincerely

Michael Lynch

General Secretary
