News, reports and information for RMT members who work for London Underground Ltd

Report: TfL Diversity and Inclusion Trade Union Engagement meeting, 30 July 2019

RMT representatives: Janine Booth, Jamie Parry

Unite had three representatives at the meeting, PCS one. The other unions - TSSA, ASLEF and Prospect - were not represented.

 

‘Safety Moment’

We raised the issue of sexual harassment, especially on Night Tube. Management responded that the Mayor’s office (Michele Dix and Amy Lame) had drawn up a charter for women’s safety at night. The unions expressed alarm that we had not been consulted about this. Management agreed to arrange for our involvement.

East Ham Branch demand an end to violent assaults at work. Support the action

Great work by the local reps and the East Ham Branch
In the wake of unprecedented violence against staff on LUL on the east end of the district line our comrades put on industrial action to say no more
We are not prepared to accept being assaulted at work 
The incident at West Ham vindicated this position 
Attacks on our members are unacceptable 
If LU do not resolve to put this right we are prepared to escalate our action
The attacks on our members across the combine must mark the end of lone working 

When off sick here’s our advice: don’t call me I’ll call you!

 

An agreement from SFC dated 2005

Whilst LUL managers may deny these agreements there’s no doubt they exist.

They just don’t like sharing.

The SFC 2019 have, at the request of our reps, re-issued the following advice.

It’s important we make them stick to agreements made with the RMT

Urgent meeting called on Victoria Line

Subject: BREAKDOWN IN INDUSTRIAL RELATIONS, TRAIN OPERATORS, VICTORIA LINE – LONDON UNDERGROUND

That we note the report from the Lead Officer; regarding the degrading by the company of the agreement reached at ACAS despite the union suspending Strike Action. London Underground's inability to manage its own lower echelon management and keep its house in order is its own sad affair until it impinges on the health, safety & welfare of its staff our members, and agreements once mutually reached with this union.
