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?

Solidarity wins - More strikes for a better deal!

The historic United strike by RMT, ASLEF, TSSA & UNITE show all tube workers are determined to fight for a fair deal on Pay & Night Tube.

RMT,ASLEF, TSSA &UNITE - Unity delivers total shutdown.

We won't accept imposition of rosters that destroy work/life balance.The latest offer has nothing new and has no improvements at all.3 out of 4 unions have named more ation.

All 4 Unions in solidarity will win a decent settlement.


No member forced to work more nights or weekends than on current rosters Volunteers who work extra nights or weekends should get extra time off.

Every Job Matters - Defending Jobs On London Underground: Strike Details


Further to my previous Circular (IR/181/15, 31st July 2015), management has failed to address our real concerns and opposition over job cuts and a casualised station workforce. The on-going overtime ban is having a drastic impact on management’s ability to run a service as members are no longer available to cover the obvious staffing shortfalls. Following a meeting of our Reps recently at Unity House to discuss this matter, the General Grades Committee has taken the decision to call on all RMT Station Grades to take part in the industrial action detailed below.

Night Tube Strike Details


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.

RMT Calls Two Day Tube Strike

TUBE UNION RMT has today confirmed two twenty four hour strikes in the Night Tube and station jobs disputes as London Underground management, under the direction of Mayor Boris Johnson, continue to stall over the issue of work/life balance and job cuts arising from the new rosters and the Fit for the Future programme - due to come into force from the 12th September.

As a result, the executive of the union has taken the following decision:
