LU Imposes Transfer & Promotion Policy on Stations

Management have renaged on an agreement to negotiate a Transfer & Promotion policy (T&P).

They will now impose further displacements of members who are covering down or are over establishment.

RMT has insisted that members have some say, through a nomination process, about where they get sent to for their substantive roles.

Managemnet say that each move will be ordered according to what saves LU the most money.

Management intend to push ahead with an imposed policy even though there is no agreed appeals process for members who get displaced.
