Industrial action

When negotiations fail, RMT members take action

Video: Night Tube strike update

On the eve of the first of several proposed Night Tube strikes, Regional Organiser John Leach updates members.

In the video, John explains: "After 6 months of trying to explain and persuade London Underground management that you cannot abolish 200 positions, rip up an agreement that protects our members work life balance, and their right to not have to do these {Night Tube} duties if they can't, we have to stand up and be counted."

Overtime works against us

Why working overtime works against us…

The sudden sharp increase in station closures demonstrates what we always knew; the job requires more station staff, not fewer. 

LU has made clear its intention to get shot of around 600 CSA posts. Talks between RMT and LU have gone nowhere but the strength of the strikes on 1st/3rd March forced a partial (temporary) climbdown on pensions and now LU is looking to take on a grade or a function at a time. 

Video: If a Tube strike 'costs' London £50m a day, how much do Tube workers generate for the economy?

If a Tube strike costs London £50m a day, then it would follow that we generate £18,250,000,000 a year - that's over 18 billion pound!

Watch Jared Wood, our National Executive Committee representative, discuss that and the importance of voting YES YES in our re-ballot.

Tube station workers to strike on June 6

4,000 station tube staff to walk out on June 6

Tube union RMT has criticised TfL for threatening 600 job losses on the network.

General Secretary Mick Lynch said:"TfL is trying to bulldoze through 600 job losses on London Underground and our members are not prepared to accept that.

"Station staff play a crucial role in serving the travelling public and were heroes during the 7/7 terrorist attacks.

TfL funding deal ends soon

TfLs latest funding deal will end on June 24th and London Underground plotting ways to make half a billion pounds of cuts.

Read the attached newsletter to see what RMT, the only union to have taken industrial action so far, is doing in response.

Strike action called for Queen's Jubilee

Tube staff will take strike action at Euston and Green Park stations on June 3, if action is not taken against a bullying manager.

RMT members at both stations have suffered years of intimidation, bullying and unjustified sackings of colleagues by a manager who has created a toxic atmosphere in the workplace.

Strike action is set for June 3 which coincides with the Queen's Jubilee and will last 24 hours.
