Today myself and reps from the other Trade Unions again met with London Underground management to provide initial feedback and questions in response to the proposals made last week. I tabled 35 questions and comments and the other unions fully supported these, as well as making a number of additional points. For the RMT, the biggest issues will be the threat to pensions if the company's proposals over pay capping are allowed to happen and needing the company to guarantee a process of preferencing for locations.
Further meetings have been scheduled with the company to fully respond to our points and these meetings will be categorised into: Locations, Development Centres, Job Descriptions, Equality, Pay, Rostering & Training. As soon as I have an update, I will keep you informed.
In the meantime, all MATS reps will be visiting workplaces to discuss this further with those affected. If you would like me to visit at a specific time or need any advice, do not hesitate to get in touch with me
