LU Transformation Update

Dear all, we felt it only right that we should issue a report by the Reps currently taking part in the consultation talks with LU Management for the latest phase of transformation.

Transformation update: management lack most basic human compassion

Dear Colleagues

Update on the Status of LU Transformation

Since the details of common principles for all work-streams were agreed, we have been working on the details of 18 separate work streams - examining the possibilities and consequences of individual pools – this has slowed progress significantly as the workload is considerable. Furthermore and more importantly, we have tabled counterproposals and challenged the designs put forward to us as well as arguing points of principle.

Our objectives thus far have been relatively simple:

Stations Admin Update

Your Transformation reps were due to meeting today (27/03/18) with London Underground, however, this meeting has been postponed until Thursday 29th March. We will give you a full update after that meeting, but this is the latest update.

Skills Development Update

At the last consultation meeting your reps had with London Underground (20/03/18), we raised a few issues, including the action tracker being incomplete, staff we believe to be in the wrong pools and the company’s lack of communication with our members or your reps.

Senior Manager Admin Update

Your Transformation reps were due to meet with London Underground today (27/03/18) for the latest consultation for Senior Management Admin. The last meeting with the company was on 2nd March and the company cancelled the subsequent meeting. We were very keen to meet them today, but unfortunately, yesterday evening, they cancelled the meeting.

LU Transformation Update

On 22nd March 2018, your Regional Organiser, along with your RMT reps and reps from other unions, met with London Underground at Director Level to discuss a number of outstanding Transformation issues. These issues included the use of Fixed Term Contract Staff, the way the company is dealing with people on maternity and parental leave, and the way they are filling vacancies that have arisen through Transformation.

 

LU Transformation Update

The RMT have written to London Underground to request a meeting with Jean Cockerill, LU Transformation reps and Regional Organisers. There are still a number of principled, cross-stream issues that we feel the company has failed to properly address.
