LU Transformation Update

Dear all, we felt it only right that we should issue a report by the Reps currently taking part in the consultation talks with LU Management for the latest phase of transformation.

Stations Admin Transformation Update

Your reps have had a response from London Underground on the counter-proposal we submitted on your behalf. We believe that the counter-proposal was robust and addressed all of the key points raised by management, as well as protecting the fundamental principle of not splitting the admin grade. However, the company have rejected this proposal entirely and now plan to impose their original business case. This is the response we received from LU 

Senior Manager Admin Transformation Update

Your MATS reps met with London Underground last week for the latest consultation meeting. There has been some progress in this work stream. The company have put in extra ADCO jobs, meaning that all ADCOs will now be mapped and there will be vacancies at that grade.

The company are also going to open Voluntary Severance for Support Managers.

Asset Operations Transformation Update

Your MATS reps met with London Underground last week for the latest consultation meeting. Again the company deviated from the agenda proposed by your reps and we made little progress. It was a three hour meeting, with the first two hours spent talking about the proposed TUPE of 3 Bombardier staff into London Underground. LU are bringing these people into the company and including one of them ‘in scope’ for Transformation. We do not agree with this and believe that existing staff should not be put at risk by somebody new coming into the company.

LU Transformation Update

The RMT have written to London Underground to request a meeting with Jean Cockerill, LU Transformation reps and Regional Organisers. There are still a number of principled, cross-stream issues that we feel the company has failed to properly address. 

Station Admin Update

Your RMT reps, along with reps from the other Unions, met with Stations Admin staff on 30/01/18 to discuss the counter proposal which was submitted. This was a very useful meeting, filled with lots of passion and lots of valuable feedback.


Transformation Counter Proposals

By now, I’m sure you have all had a chance to familiarise yourselves with the Business Case in your area that LU are proposing as part of Transformation. The RMT continue to oppose the proposed changes in the Business Cases and we have had agreement from the company that they are willing to consider counter proposals from affected areas.


Transformation Update - Job Descriptions

During our previous staff consultation drop ins the TU requested you all to be proactive and provide us with your current job descriptions and examples where you believe you go above and beyond your current role.

We are now in the process of receiving the proposed "draft" job descriptions from management to review, so it is imperative that you access these and feed back to us your comment and concerns. These JDs are available on Sharepoint.
