RMT General Grades Committee decision:

The company has presented a large volume of material to us about these plans.

LUL Declares War - RMT London Transport Region Response To Tube Jobs And Safety Decimation

LUL Declares War

Make no mistake, the Confidential Report exposed by RMT is the result of months, if not years, of management preparations to transform our job, root and branch, and bust the trade unions along with it.

The results will be massive job losses across all grades.

Bob Crow, RMT General Secretary, said “This document tells us everything we need to know about the operational strategy of London Underground - massive increase in fares alongside an unprecedented attack on jobs and safety. “Every single ticket office would be closed, stations left unstaffed and drivers would be thrown out of their cabs without a single thought for passenger safety.

Transferred Staff Get 6-7.5% Pay Rise

RMT General Grades Committee decision:

We note the agreement from Transport for London that staff recently transferred from London Underground will receive the same pay award as other TfL employees, receiving a rise of between 6% and 7.5%. We endorse our Regional Organiser’s recommendation that we accept this.

This offer underlines the inadequacy of other pay offers in companies either owned or contracted/franchised by TfL, such as London Underground and Alstom Metro Trains.

We therefore instruct the General Secretary to:

RMT Pursues Issue of 'Command and Control Review'

General Grades Committee decision:

We note the correspondence from London Underground. We now have a little more information on this matter than previously, and note that the physical moves of the affected functions will not now commence until after the 2012 Olympic Games.

We note that discussion will take place at Service Control Functional and Health & Safety Councils this month. We instruct the General Secretary to:

Referendum accept Track Access Control grade progression offer

RMT General Grades Committee decision:

That we note the referendum/ballot result is as follows:-

Total votes cast...................10
Number voting “Yes”............9
Number voting “No”..............1
Spoilt Papers.........................0

We congratulate our members for taking a firm stance and achieving a far better deal than was originally offered.

Therefore we instruct the General Secretary to inform the Company of our acceptance of the improved offer.

Further a personal letter to be sent to all members involved.

Power Control Room / TAC Grade Progression: Update

RMT General Grades Committee decision:

That we note the report from our Regional Organiser.

We accept the company’s offer on grade progression for the Power Control Room, and congratulate our rep and our members for taking a firm stance and achieving a far better deal than was originally offered.

We note that our outstanding concerns regarding the TAC office have now been addressed. We instruct the General Secretary to conduct a referendum of our members in the TAC office, with a recommendation to accept the company’s offer on grade progression.

Power Control Room dispute: update

RMT General Grades Committee decision:

That we note that discussions with London Underground regarding Power Control Room grade progression are continuing. We note that while the company has agreed to most of our demands, it intends to implement its offer over a three-year period. We see no reason why our members should wait three years for an improved grade progression deal.

We therefore instruct the General Secretary to request an agreement from London Underground to extend the 28-day deadline for the calling of industrial action.
