RMT London Underground Pay Claim 2015

This year marks the end of our current London Underground pay deal and the beginning of negotiations for the next deal. Here is the pay claim that the RMT has given to tube bosses. In this pay claim the RMT is asking for:

  1. A substantial pay award Dramatic rises in living costs necessitate a substantial, unconditional pay award at the earliest opportunity, in order for our members’ pay to keep pace with both the increasing cost of living and rates of pay in the industry.
  2. A minimum flat rate increase for those on the lowest pay Those members who receive the lowest salaries bear the brunt of any increase in living costs and, as such, should be afforded additional protection in the form of a minimum flat rate increase.
  3. Reduction in the working week RMT members have identified a reduction in full-time working to a 4 day, 32 hour week as a key target (with a pro-rata decrease for part-time workers).
  4. Ending the practice of permanently managed vacancies The union’s policy is for management to increase levels of coverage in the roster and to cease the practice of permanently managed vacancies.
  5. Best travel facilities for all staff All staff, whether directly employed or not, should receive free access to all travel facilities as standard. This includes individuals who provide support services such as cleaning via outsourced companies, being entitled to the same travel facilities as directly employed workers.
  6. Overtime The union opposes the use of overtime where extensive and continued vacancies exist; we also oppose contractual, compulsory and the rostering of overtime.
  7. Family friendly policies The desire for improved work-life balance is coupled with a demand for more progressive ‘family-friendly’ policies and a claim for 52 weeks full pay for all women on maternity leave.
