IMPOSITION OF NIGHT TUBE DUTIES, TRAIN OPERATORS - LONDON UNDERGROUND (LUL/2/3)

Further to my previous Circular IR/103/22, 6th March 2022, a re-ballot is being conducted over London Underground's unacceptable imposition of night tube duties into the TO21 roster, as this issue remains unresolved. RMT remains committed to defending the work/life balance of Train Operator members and preventing dangerous levels of fatigue, as per the 2016 agreement.

Strike action called for Queen's Jubilee

Tube staff will take strike action at Euston and Green Park stations on June 3, if action is not taken against a bullying manager.

RMT members at both stations have suffered years of intimidation, bullying and unjustified sackings of colleagues by a manager who has created a toxic atmosphere in the workplace.

Strike action is set for June 3 which coincides with the Queen's Jubilee and will last 24 hours.
