Sodexo ditches compulsory redundancy plan following RMT ballot threat


Further to my previous Circular (IR/441/20, 3rd November 2020), I advised Sodexo that a dispute situation existed over its restructuring plans including 30 job cuts across TfL sites. The Lead Officer then met with the Company and it has now been confirmed that Sodexo no longer intends to make any compulsory redundancies.

The National Executive Committee has congratulated all members, our reps and officer for their tireless work to prevent the planned redundancies amongst catering members working in London Underground canteens. This achievement was as a direct result of the efforts and commitment of all those affected and demonstrates the benefits of RMT membership and organisation.

There are still current vacancies for RMT Reps from the Sodexo workforce and I urge any member who is interested in becoming an RMT Rep to contact the RMT South East Regional Office as soon as possible on 0207 529 8860 / 0207 529 8853 for further information.
