Subject: LONDON UNDERGROUND – NIGHT TUBE SAFETY

RMT asks management to reconsider offer to leapfrogged Night Tube drivers

UPDATE ON LEAP-FROGGED DRIVERS DIRECTORS MEETING.

Today the RMT and ASLEF met with Management concerning the leap-frogged drivers situation.

Management put a proposal that all 23 affected leap-frogged drivers would receive a days pay for every week that they were leap-frogged.

Management said that this was a "gratis payment" as the leap-frogged drivers did not work full-time during this period and it would be unfair to pay them for work that they never did.

Night Tube and London Overground

On 15 September, TfL announced a restructuring of London Overground to reduce staff, close ticket offices, and run overnight service. This is on top of plans already afoot to withdraw Overground staff from Underground stations outside weekday peak hours.

These proposals will obviously have an impact on London Underground stations which interchange with London Overground, so RMT is insisting to LUL that it tells the union the details and discusses potential issues. Make sure that you talk to your RMT rep or go to your branch meeting to voice your concerns.

Night Tube staff - Don't face management alone: use your union rep!

Called to a Local Disciplinary Interview? Or a case conference? Got a meeting with management to discuss your Flexible Working application? Or your grievance? Make sure that an RMT representative comes with you!

Sometimes, Night Tube staff think that the union can not provide them with a representative because of Night Tube working hours. But the union can and will.
