LU are meant to be putting their plans for deploying 325 additional jobs to RMT reps at the end of this month.
But instead of getting on with this in a constructive way, LU has now refused to recognise many of our local reps, who are supposed to be looking at the new local rosters that will incorporate the new jobs.
LU think they can unilaterally tear up an agreemnt made in March 2000 and signed by LU and all recognised unions. The agreement specifies 54 station reps but in spite of trebling the number of employing managers on stations, management think they can abolish 16 of our reps.
