News, reports and information for RMT members who work for London Underground Ltd

The Transport for London Bill was introduced into Parliament to allow TfL to participate in novel company structures – including opaque, tax avoiding offshore structures that are well-known vehicles for laundering capital. Specifically, TfL intended to jump head first into the worst kind of corporate structures known as “Limited Partnerships” to maximise the profit it hoped to make from developing the land it owns above and around stations.

To RMT Members
It has been brought to my attention that some RMT members in Station grades have been sent letters that involve some sort of offer / and or contract to sign under Fit For the future stations. We have been in discussion with management over this matter for some time, and we were waiting for the company to come back to us.
Additionally I have taken legal advice from RMTs lawyers on the matter of contracts under FFFS.

DISMISSAL, R. GARD, CSA, BOND STREET – LONDON UNDERGROUND (LUL/4/1) Further to my previous Circular (IR/276/15, 12th November 2015), members will recall the case of Sister Rachel Gard who suffers from type 1 diabetes and was recently dismissed from London Underground.
This matter has now been considered again by the National Executive Committee, which has noted the outcome of the Director’s review to uphold the decision to dismiss Sister Gard, and taken the decision to commence a ballot of our Customer Service Assistant members at Bond Street Station.
