Tube Bosses Response At Tube Strike ACAS Talks 'Very Negative'

To all RMT members in London Underground:

This morning myself and senior RMT stations reps met LUL, with the other unions at ACAS.

The first session dealt with Every Job Matters (Fit For Future Stations) We met management face to face and made a strong case for increasing jobs , no worsening of our rosters, protection for medically restricted staff, part timers, displacements, and so on. Essentially for many improvements for all grades effected.

The response was very negative.

New Tube Industrial Action Short of Strike Called As Dispute Intensifies

New action short begins from 0330 hours Tuesday 28th July 2015

Dear Colleagues,


M Door Dispute Discussions Continue


We met with management to discuss the Jubilee Line M Door issue, and a host of other issues at a recent Tier 2A meeting.

The upshot is, we are still no nearer a resolution on this issue. We will need another meeting to discuss the issue further, but in the meantime, management have a agreed not to ask any driver to carry on to the next station to check should they receive an M Door activated alarm. Drivers will be allowed to go back and check, even between stations.

ACAS Talks Halted Over Union Safety Concerns

Talks aimed at settling the dispute over night running on London Underground have been halted this morning (Tuesday) after tube union RMT was called in for an emergency meeting with the safety regulator following a series of serious breaches of safety protocols over the past week directly linked to the RMT overtime ban.

The talks were due to recommence at ACAS this morning but have been shelved to allow for RMT senior representatives to attend the urgent meeting at the ORR.

The safety issues have been raised by RMT over the weekend.

Fleet Agency Trainers Dispute ACAS Update

Today (Monday) I'm attending talks with LUL about our joint dispute with Unite over the outsourcing of LUL jobs (in training) to agency on the Fleet project Heavy Overhaul Programe Lift (HOPL).

This is a major project to overhaul the Central line rolling stock - trains. This project is being used as a Trogan horse to outsource directly employed staff.

RMT and Unite are fighting this tooth and nail and currently we have an overtime ban right across the Fleet membership on LUL.

We have other 'action short' industrial action too.

Every Job Matters Strikes Continue


Further to my previous Circular (IR/158, 3rd July 2015), members are congratulated for taking part in the significant strike action on Wednesday 8th and Thursday 9th July and I urge all LU Station Staff to continue this fight against the decimation of jobs and conditions on London Underground. There is currently a stalemate situation as LUL have said we can have input but there are simply not enough people left in the mix after the unacceptable job losses to resolve the issues over unacceptable displacements, unacceptable rosters and unacceptable changes to members’ terms and conditions.

RMT Circular: Tube Strikes Called For August 5th and 6th


Further to my previous Circular (IR/158/15, 3rd July 2015), members are congratulated for taking part in the significant strike action on Wednesday 8th and Thursday 9th July involving all 4 trade unions, which saw every station closed and meant that not a single London Underground train ran on Thursday 9th July. The General Grades Committee has noted the intransigent stance from management over this dispute including the divisive pay offer and the failure to address the wider issues of work/life balance caused by the Company trying to bulldoze through the imposition of Night Tube.

Strike again on 5-6 August!
Our strike on 8-9 July shut down the entire Tube network, but management isn’t budging. That’s why RMT, Aslef, TSSA, and Unite have called another strike for 5-6 August. RMT Bakerloo mounted three successful, well-supported picket lines on 8-9 July, at Queen’s Park, Oxford Circus, and Elephant and Castle, along with comrades from Aslef and TSSA.
