Fixed term contract? Why you shoud strike

LU has been looking for a formula to weaken the trades unions for years. They hoped the development of the SRT would have a negative effect on stations , but the buggers kept joining the RMT.
When the unions rightly forced management to address the gender imbalance among drivers, LU thought that by advertising in Cosmopolitan, etc, they'd get a nice passive workforce in heels & Laura Ashley skirts.
Nope - the buggers joined trade unions.

RMT Demands Real Negotiations on FftF Issues

LU's new COO has issued a bulletin claiming a bizzare reluctance to talk on the part of the TU's.
Bizarrely, this claim is made by a COO who has yet to utter a word to any officer or rep from any of the TUs.

Following two meetings at ACAS on Pay & Night-tube the outging COO did no more than restate their opening at Company Council two months ago - LU wants a fair, affordable and sustainable pay settlement.

59 Jobs Restored in Revised Rosters: RMT tells LU this is totally unacceptable

London Underground has finally revealed its revised staffing figure for our stations. After 7 months of discussions, around the rosters in every area, 59 jobs have been restored.

This means, taking into account the 64 jobs won back in earlier talks, that LU now plans 838 job cuts instead of 953.

We have won 115 jobs back in talks but we have made it clear to the company at today’s meeting that 838 cuts remains totally unacceptable. It will leave stations dangerously understaffed and it will put members working on stations in an impossible position.
