Jubilee South branch annual general meeting takes place on pay day - 25th November 2015. All members are welcome to attend. As this is our AGM we will be dealing with the election of representatives as well as normal branch business.
The General Secretary has written to all RMT members on LU to explain that LU has made it clear that all staff covered by the pay offer can discuss the specifcs of a compressed working week at functional level.
I would like to make it clear that the longer shifts that would be necessary for a four day week are already possible within our stations framework and this is why no refferendum of station staff is taking place.
I am pleased to announce that Lorna Tooley was elected the RMT MATS rep for LUL Managers, admin and technical services at the June TFL1 & LU MATS Branch meeting. Lorna was elected as the interim RMT MATS rep in May however after the post was advertised she was elected unopposed.
All members of East Ham Branch are encourage to attend the next meeting, which will take place on Thursday 4th June at 16:45 at The Spotted Dog in Barking.
The General Grades Committee has received advice from our legal department that there may be some issues with the ballot for Noel Roberts. This is a symptom of the disgraceful anti-Trade Union laws we are dictated by.
TFL1 and LU MATS (LU Managers and admin) branch meetings are held upstairs, 17.00-19.30. Every 2nd Monday of each month in The Crown public house. 105 Blackfriars Rd. 5 mins walk right out of the Southwark Station
12th Jan, 9th Feb, 9th March, 13th April, 11th May, 8th June, 13th July, 10th Aug, 14th Sept, 12th Oct, 9th Nov, 14th Dec AGM

RE-GRADING OF WATERLOO & CITY LINE SERVICE CONTROL STAFF – LONDON UNDERGROUND (LUL/2/2)
Further to my previous Circular (IR/340/14, 19th December 2015), members will recall that the industrial action was suspended to allow for further discussions to take place and to explore a way forward that would meet our claim for Service Controller’s to be paid the SCL1 for the job.
RAINBOW ATTENDANCE POLICY – LONDON UNDERGROUND (LUL/5/9)
Further to my previous Circular (IR/100/15, 16th April 2015), a resolution regarding this matter has been received from the London Transport Regional Council, which notes the recent dismissal of Noel Roberts whilst fit and at work. This amounts to a capability/rainbow dismissal which is not a recognised nor agreed procedure with our Union and leaves all LUL members vulnerable to being sacked whilst fit and at work.
Further to my previous Circular (IR/70/15, 12th March 2015), this matter was raised at a Stations Functional Council meeting where a failure to agree was recorded over the Company refusing to honour its transfer procedure for station staff and I am currently seeking legal advice as to whether LUL’s action constitutes a breach of members’ contracts of employment.
