Dear Colleagues,

EVERY JOB MATTERS – DEFENDING JOBS ON LONDON UNDERGROUND

As you will be aware, the new operating model in respect of Fit for the Future - Stations commenced on 7th February 2016 and I have received a resolution from our Central Line East Branch regarding this matter, which is as follows:-

“We note the following problems on the ‘vanguard groups’ (ie. those on which Fit for the Future – Stations has already been implemented) in our Branch’s area:

Would you like to be an RMT rep or branch officer?

It is that time of year when we open nominations for RMT representatives and branch officers in the Central Line East branch area.

Everyone who is elected will receive training and support from the union in carrying out the role.

The successful candidates will hold the post from 1 January until 31 December 2016, and may stand for reelection next year.

Nominations for all these posts are now open.

The nomination forms for London Underground Ltd RMT reps are attached to this post.

Extensive Scabbing Operation Launched As Waterloo & City Line Strike Takes Place

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.
