RMT demands closure of Ealing Broadway station over asbestos warning

TUBE UNION RMT today demanded the closure of Ealing Broadway station and urgent reassurances to staff after an asbestos alarm was raised by union reps.

Over the weekend there was a major incident at Ealing Broadway station when roof tiles, containing asbestos, fell on the platform. London Underground staff , unaware they contained asbestos , assisted in the clearing up . RMT says that it is not the first time that this has happened.

Tube workers ask: Where is our pay rise?

RATES OF PAY & CONDITIONS OF SERVICE 2015 – LONDON UNDERGROUND

Following this Union’s official acceptance on 1st March of the 4-year pay offer for our LUL members, I would be grateful if you could advise me when the applicable increase and backdated monies will be paid to my members? 

The offer included the assurance that payment of basic salary to all eligible staff, backdated to 1 April 2015, will be paid through the first available payroll following acceptance of this offer but I have been informed that at the time of writing, it has not yet been implemented. 

Beware of pension 'rip offs'

Dear Colleague,

 

TO ALL TFL PENSION FUND MEMBERS - BEWARE OF PENSION RIP OFFS

I have been contacted by our representatives across LUL/TfL who have raised with the RMT their concerns that financial service (insurance) companies are offering to “release” TfL Pension Fund members' pensions in return for a lump sum payment. I have been passed letters from a certain company who are offering a lump sum payment of 25% of the members' total TfL Pension Fund value with the remaining amount being reinvested.

RMT General Secretary congratulates Piccadilly Line strikers

Dear Colleagues

BREAKDOWN IN INDUSTRIAL RELATIONS, TRAIN OPERATORS, PICCADILLY LINE – LONDON UNDERGROUND

Further to my letter of yesterday’s date, first of all I would like to congratulate you all on the magnificent display of solidarity that you and your colleagues are participating in today. All Piccadilly Line services are currently suspended and will remain so throughout the rest of the day.

Tube bosses refuse to address serious issues at heart of dispute and strike goes ahead tonight on Piccadilly Line

 

Tube union RMT  today confirmed that there have been no further talks and 24 hours of strike action goes ahead from nine o’clock tonight by nearly 400 train operators across the Piccadilly Line over a comprehensive breakdown in industrial relations combining a range of issues. No services will be running.

85% voted for strike action with an even larger number voting for action short of a strike.

Piccadilly strike remains on due to 'out of control' management

Dear RMT members,

This afternoon I have received a letter from LUL on the above. After waiting 6 days for any contact.

We made it clear at ACAS last week that our three (with three aslef as well) 6 in total victimised members at Oakwood need to be exonerated before the strike called for tomorrow. They've had at least 6 days from acas and weeks before that as well with all other issues to be resolved.

This has not been offered. An appeal for one member which is a legal entitlement is all that is forthcoming, as well as a meeting for another case and an acas review.
