Justice for Station and Revenue Staff

Dear colleague

JUSTICE FOR STATION AND REVENUE STAFF

RMT has launched a campaign to achieve Justice for Station and Revenue Staff at London Underground as the company tries to bulldoze through plans to undermine revenue grades by introducing a new grade on inferior terms and conditions and over its continuous failure to take proper steps to address the issue of workplace violence faced by all LU station grade members.

BREAKDOWN IN INDUSTRIAL RELATIONS, TRAIN OPERATORS, VICTORIA LINE - LONDON UNDERGROUND (LUL/14/2)

Further to my circular IR/465/19 15th November 2019, your NEC considered a recent report from the lead officer as well as correspondence from LUL received following discussions held under the auspices of ACAS. Having considered the current position the NEC decided that we should discuss the issues most recently raised by our negotiating team through the machinery and that we should also consolidate our already gained commitments from LUL.

Bakerloo line drivers to be balloted over serious concerns about timetable

WORKING TIMETABLE 44/45 (WT44/45) TRAIN OPERATORS, BAKERLOO LINE - LONDON UNDERGROUND (LUL/14/2)

Our Industrial and Health and Safety representatives on the Bakerloo line have been raising serious concerns over the implementation of Working Timetable WT44/45 which has been in place since May 2019. We firmly believe this timetable is failing and is causing undue stress on Train Operator members.
