Tube Bosses Transfer & Promotion Policy Unacceptable

TRANSFER POLICY – LONDON UNDERGROUND (LUL/16/2)

Further to my previous Circular (IR/124/15, 14th May 2015), the Lead Officer has discussed the legal findings with the Stations and Revenue Functional Council Secretary and advised that LUL’s proposals for the T&P have not changed and remain unacceptable. The Company still want to remove the right to nominate for promotion to grades for which a licence is held. They are also proposing to remove payment for Higher Grade Working until three consecutive shifts have been worked.

Tube Strike Suspended As Talks Continue

We note the report from our Lead Officer. LUL have suspended Night Tube and talks will resume at ACAS. This is due to the action and resolve of our members. We therefore instruct the General Secretary to suspend the industrial action planned for the 8th and 10th September, and advise London Underground.

We further instruct the General Secretary:-

  • To give a full report of our progress in talks to the Rally of our members on 7th September
  • To inform members by letter, text and e-mail of the reasons we have suspended the action, and invite them to the Rally on 7th September

Further to my previous Circular (IR/200/15, 20th August 2015) we have been in intensive discussions with LUL at ACAS in an effort to reach agreement and resolve these two disputes. Now, as a result of the 100% support we have been receiving from members including two all-out strikes, a position was reached that allowed us to suspend the industrial action.
