Upfront Ballot Special: Tube Bosses Declare War On Drivers

  • LUL Declare Ware On Drivers
  • Unions Unite
  • Ir's a Nightmare on Night Tube

LUL's plans for new rosters to facilitate night tube rip up our hard earned agreements in a serial killing of our work life balance that Freddy Kruger would be proud of. These proposed rosters really are the stuff of nightmares…and the ones that LUL have shared so far are the “good ones”.

Reinstate Paul Okoro - Sacked Because His Phone Rang

Paul Okoro has been unfairly sacked because his phone rang. The RMT are defending Paul and we are ready to fight for his reinstatement. What has happened to him could happen to any of us. Stand with us now as we support him and defend ourselves against unfair dismissal.

Paul Okoro was sacked because he briefly glanced at his mobile phone whilst in Northfields depot. The train was stationary and he didn't answer his phone. He handed over the train to a colleague before taking the call in the passenger saloon – his actions were safe at all times.

RMT Says No To New Tube Faulty Radio Procedure


There is a new rule going live on May 4th, OSN 118. This would see trains running in passenger services with no direct contact the controller. This is obviously an unacceptable risk to the RMT.

We have had various meetings with LU on this matter and we have continually objected to its introduction. As LU were intent on imposing this on us we have contacted our Head Office with a view to escalating the matter. You will be hearing from our union top brass in due course on this matter.
