Finsbury Park Branch Newsletter - Every Job Matters

Dear Finsbury Park Branch Member,

As you are no doubt aware LUL has announced a massive attack on the jobs and conditions of mainly station based grades.

This is being done due to the massive budget cuts announced by Central government to the TfL budget mainly due to the actions of a handful of people in the banking sector some years ago.

They are asking us to pay through our jobs and conditions for their mistakes and this is not acceptable.

Every Job Matters - Vote Yes For Industrial Action

In every area, the company is either cutting jobs or preparing to cut jobs. It is deliberately under-staffing our workplaces, attacking our conditions and ‘reinterpreting’ our agreements. It wants to replace skilled workers with unreliable automation.

This is not aimed at improving our Tube but at saving millions of pounds following the government’s 12.5% cut to Transport for London’s funding.

London Underground Ltd plans

RMT Cleaners Strike Update

RMT union & its members are demanding:-

  • SICK PAY: Cleaning jobs are dangerous and when working with
    chemicals with a combination of poor or inferior PPE staff often get sick.
    However the cleaning Companies do not care about their Workers.
  • A DECENT PENSION: Many Cleaners are working well beyond other Workers retirement age because they cannot afford to retire as they have no pension to retire on. This is a disgrace in 2012 Britain.
  • ANNUAL PAY INCREASE: Why would any bosses object to this?
