LUL back down in voluntary severence row with the RMT

LUL has now agreed with the RMT that voluntary severance should not be available for staff until after the consultation process has been concluded
They have sent a letter to us that states it will not be currently possible for affected staff to express an interest in or apply for voluntary severance
This follows RMT demands that LUL cannot implement a policy before it has finished consulting on it.
This follows a series of meetings that the RMT have attended with LUL - who incidentally have been telling staff on their intranet site that we had refused to attend.

(Still) The enemy within

In 1984, Margaret Thatcher labelled 160,000 striking miners, their families and supporters, ‘The Enemy Within’. It was to be the longest industrial dispute in British history.

As the strike began, a group of miners emerged that were prepared to fight on the front line of every major battle. They were demonised by the media and despised by the government.

Dubbed ‘Arthur’s Army’, they were to lead a fightback that would not just rock the government but would change British society forever.

'Hundreds of Tube ticket offices to shut' as machines replace staff

This explains why LUL have been so reluctant to answer the questions your elected reps have been asking!

Hundreds of Tube ticket offices will be scrapped next year as Mayor Boris Johnson seeks to cut thousands of London Underground jobs, it was claimed today.

Mobile units of supervisors will replace staff at stations outside zone one in an attempt to move to full automation of ticket sales to cut costs.

Rail unions revealed the proposals as they published a poll showing overwhelming opposition to ticket office closures, with 71 per cent of travellers against full automation.
