Report: TfL Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Forum, 9 June

TfL Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) Trade Union Engagement Forum, 9 June 2021

Report from Janine Booth (RMT)

 

After a long break, the Forum met on Teams on 9 June 2021. Janine Booth and Glen Hart attended on behalf of RMT. ASLEF, TSSA and Unite were also present, but other TfL unions were not. This forum is separate from the collective bargaining machinery, but more sharing of information between them would be helpful.

Jubilee South branch meeting: organise to fight the proposed cuts

Jubilee South branch meeting is taking place on Zoom, Wednesday 30th of June at 4pm. These branch meetings take place each pay day at the same time.

London Underground has started talking about their plans to make cuts, and we need to get ready as a union to fight back and defend our jobs, pensions and conditions.

Jubilee South News, attached, has info for Tube workers. Please distribute it in your Jubilee South branch area and come along to the meeting and encourage others to join you too.

The fight back starts here!

Staff Our Stations meeting

Staff our Stations - RMT Regional Campaign Meetings - Register Now!

To: All RMT Station Grades members in rail, London Underground and metro

Dear Colleague,

Your Union has long campaigned against attempts by Government and train companies to cut station staffing, close ticket offices and casualise the workforce under the Staff our Stations campaign. Whilst the threats to station grades, of course, pre-date Covid-19, it is clear that Government and companies are attempting to use the pandemic to attack station grades jobs, pay and conditions.
