TUBE UNION RMT said this afternoon that the strike dates on London Underground this week have been suspended, with new dates announced in September, as talks over pay, jobs and Night Tube have made significant progress at ACAS.

London Underground Strike Suspended - New Action Called

As members will be aware, your Union has been in intensive discussions with LUL at ACAS in an effort to reach agreement and resolve the current disputes over Rates of Pay & Conditions of Service & Night Running and Every Job Matters – Defending Jobs on London Underground. Now, as a result of the 100% support we have been receiving from you and your colleagues including two all-out strikes, a position has been reached that allows us to suspend the industrial action.

Reminder: Tube Strike On For Two Days Next Week

RATES OF PAY & CONDITIONS OF SERVICE AND NIGHT RUNNING – LONDON UNDERGROUND (LUL/0001)

Further to my previous Circular (IR/194/15, 12th August 2015), members are reminded of the forthcoming strike action detailed below.

All LU members, excluding Train Operators And Instructor Operators are instructed not to book on for any shifts that commence between:-

  • 18:30 hours on Tuesday 25th August 2015 and 18:29 hours on Wednesday 26th August 2015.

Waterloo & City Strike Ballot Planned

RE-GRADING OF WATERLOO & CITY LINE SERVICE CONTROL STAFF – LONDON UNDERGROUND (LUL/2/2)

Further to my previous Circular (IR/150/15, 15th June 2015), members will recall our offer to London Underground to return to ACAS to seek a binding agreement to progress our claim that Service Controllers at Waterloo should be re-graded and paid at the SCL1 rate in recognition of their hard work and multi-skilled duties. However, LUL’s position remains unchanged that it considers the current pay and grade for the role to be correct, and that a re-grade is dependent on additional duties and accountability being identified and implemented.

Tube Lines Strike Ballot Over Pay & Night Tube

RATES OF PAY & CONDITIONS OF SERVICE AND NIGHT RUNNING – TUBE LINES AP JNP (LUL/0001/TL)

Further to my previous Circular (IR/175/15, 23rd July 2015), the final offer which has been received from Tube Lines is as follows:-

Year One

  • A 1% increase + a £500 consolidated payment.
  • A £500 non-consolidated payment, which will be paid to all staff covered by collective bargaining in recognition of a 24-hour service.

Year Two & Three

  • A 1% or RPI increase, whichever is greater.

Upfront Newsletter: August 2015

Members of all unions once again showed the power of united action with another magnificent display of strength during the last strike. The all-grades overtime ban is hitting LUL hard and we have seen proof of this on their central target board. It has more red crosses than a game of Celebrity Squares with actual lost customer hours almost double the target. Lost hours caused through the Fleet overtime ban are 15 times higher than the target!

Why are we taking action?

Night Tube Strike Details

RATES OF PAY & CONDITIONS OF SERVICE AND NIGHT RUNNING – LONDON UNDERGROUND (LUL/0001)

Further to my previous Circular (IR/181/15, 31st July 2015), RMT members have already taken part in two separate 24-hour strikes and other forms of on-going industrial action which have been solidly supported and meant that no London Underground services ran on Thursday 9th July or Thursday 6th August.
