Changes to London Underground trains operational management

We note the letter from the company imposing this reorganisation on our members and staff in general.

We recognise the extensive work involved in this mater so therefore congratulate our Representatives for successfully mitigating the worse aspects of this restructuring through their negotiations with the company, and remain vigilant!

We instruct the General Secretary to organise a recruitment drive among these grades.

Members to be advised by written letter and email.

Relevant branches and the London Transport Regional Council to be advised.

Trains Manager - Director's Review Outcome

Yesterday, we met with the company for a Director’s Review about proposed changes to trains management. The company refused to acknowledge that anyone’s terms and conditions are being changed and are determined to continue with their imposition date of Sunday 23rd April.

We stated that this is unacceptable and we do not agree with this position. The RMT has insisted from day one that these changes are a change of terms and conditions and the company have refused to engage with proper negotiations with us.

London Underground Impose Train Manager Role

LU management have announced that they will be releasing Train Manager rosters this Sunday 26th March. It therefore remains clear to the RMT that they still have no interest in engaging in meaningful negotiations and plan to impose the new model in 28 days from release of rosters. 
The following response has been sent today to Mike Smith:

TOSM change to T&Cs

We have now received legal advice that the changes to trains management DO constitute a change to TOSM terms and conditions. Any TOSM who believes they will be unfairly impacted by the changes to trains management are advised to contact their rep for further advice on the next steps to take. The RMT remain in dispute with London Underground on this issue and ballot papers will be arriving soon. You are advised to vote YES for strike action and action short of strike
