Night Tube and London Overground

On 15 September, TfL announced a restructuring of London Overground to reduce staff, close ticket offices, and run overnight service. This is on top of plans already afoot to withdraw Overground staff from Underground stations outside weekday peak hours.

These proposals will obviously have an impact on London Underground stations which interchange with London Overground, so RMT is insisting to LUL that it tells the union the details and discusses potential issues. Make sure that you talk to your RMT rep or go to your branch meeting to voice your concerns.

Night Tube staff - Don't face management alone: use your union rep!

Called to a Local Disciplinary Interview? Or a case conference? Got a meeting with management to discuss your Flexible Working application? Or your grievance? Make sure that an RMT representative comes with you!

Sometimes, Night Tube staff think that the union can not provide them with a representative because of Night Tube working hours. But the union can and will.

Throughout our research, it has become clear that most passengers feel that the most critical part of their journey experience relating to staff is their visibility and availability, as opposed to their location.

Trains Work life balance dispute ACAS update

The RMT entered into a dispute with London Underground in August as tube bosses had failed to deliver on agreements they made as a part of our 2015 pay deal.

Your union wanted to negotiate alongside Aslef but for several days they refused to share a room with us at ACAS. On one occasion they walked out early in the day so your RMT negotiators where left to meet with management separately to push for a resolution. It was only at the final stage that both the RMT and Aslef met management collectively.

The RMT has secured the following offers at ACAS:
