Following latest discussions with the company; we instruct the General Secretary to arrange a TfL mass members meeting this month; inviting all other unions on TfL to seek a way forward in line with our members wishes, union policy and with a view to inter-union cooperation.

Members to be advised by email and text.

All London Transport Branches and the London Transport Regional Council to be advised.

Transformation Counter Proposals

By now, I’m sure you have all had a chance to familiarise yourselves with the Business Case in your area that LU are proposing as part of Transformation. The RMT continue to oppose the proposed changes in the Business Cases and we have had agreement from the company that they are willing to consider counter proposals from affected areas.

 

Transformation Update - Job Descriptions

During our previous staff consultation drop ins the TU requested you all to be proactive and provide us with your current job descriptions and examples where you believe you go above and beyond your current role.

We are now in the process of receiving the proposed "draft" job descriptions from management to review, so it is imperative that you access these and feed back to us your comment and concerns. These JDs are available on Sharepoint.

Dear Colleagues

HAPPY NEW FARES RISE PROTESTS

Thank you to everyone who has helped organise these important protests.
