Pay & Night Tube Dispute: Make Your Vote Count This Week

On June 11th LUL stated that they want a wage settlement, including Night Tube, which is “affordable, fair and sustainable.” This is a change from early April when they said they wanted a settlement which was “affordable, sustainable and fair.” So in all this time the only real change to the offer from LUL has been in the order of the words.

  • Ballot papers for Pay & Night Tube industrial action will be sent out to you all on Tuesday 16th June and the closing date for this ballot will be Tuesday 30th June 2015.

Upfront Ballot Special: Tube Bosses Declare War On Drivers

  • LUL Declare Ware On Drivers
  • Unions Unite
  • Ir's a Nightmare on Night Tube

LUL's plans for new rosters to facilitate night tube rip up our hard earned agreements in a serial killing of our work life balance that Freddy Kruger would be proud of. These proposed rosters really are the stuff of nightmares…and the ones that LUL have shared so far are the “good ones”.

Reinstate Paul Okoro - Sacked Because His Phone Rang

Paul Okoro has been unfairly sacked because his phone rang. The RMT are defending Paul and we are ready to fight for his reinstatement. What has happened to him could happen to any of us. Stand with us now as we support him and defend ourselves against unfair dismissal.

Paul Okoro was sacked because he briefly glanced at his mobile phone whilst in Northfields depot. The train was stationary and he didn't answer his phone. He handed over the train to a colleague before taking the call in the passenger saloon – his actions were safe at all times.

Pay & Night Tube Dispute: Acas Update

LUL Pay and Night Tube Negotiaions ACAS update from Regional Organiser John Leach

Dear RMT Members

Today myself and senior RMT reps from all LUL grades attended exploratory talks at ACAS to discuss the above matter. All the unions made the same point that LUL must abandon its reckless decision to break our current arrangements , and that the management must agree to negotiate changes.

Tube Lines Pay Meeting Called

RATES OF PAY & CONDITIONS OF SERVICE 2015 – TUBE LINES (LUL/0001/TL)

In line with Union policy, a claim was submitted to the Company for a substantial increase in rates of pay and improvements to conditions of service. The Company initially tabled a 0.5% pay increase which was rejected. At a further recent meeting, the Company offered a two year deal which was the same as the offer received from London Underground – a 0.75% increase in year one, an RPI increase in year two and a one-off payment in return for the introduction of Night Tube. Following our rejection of the offer, the Company advised that this was not its final offer and agreed that further meetings would take place.
