RMT Update on proposed Night Tube changes

  • RMT is the majority Night Tube drivers' union. Please display this important update in your Night Tube depot.

June 3rd 2020

Some things are so important that drivers just want their reps to put inter-Union rivalry to one side and to work together to obtain the best outcome; and in uncertain times like these it is necessary to do just that. As we said in our first briefing, we want to work with Aslef in achieving job security for NT drivers. It is their choice to issue leaflets denigrating the RMT and our members, our concern is to get the best for you.

LU caves in to government demand to run full service

Don’t put yourself in danger to meet government targets
Tube staf could soon exposed to thousands of people every day. The failure to protect London Bus drivers from close contact with the public contributed to a terrible Covid 19 death-toll amongst these workers - 16 times higher than the rate of Covid deaths of NHS staf. TfL may be refusing to learn from their failure to close the front doors but RMT will not stand by and allow members on LUL/TFL to be exposed to unacceptable risk.

Coronavirus: Urgent tube safety advice regarding services from 11th May

10th May 2020

To: All RMT Rail and London Underground members.

Dear Colleague

COVID - 19 URGENT RMT SAFETY ADVICE REGARDING RAIL AND TUBE SERVICES FROM 11th MAY

Over the weekend I have been contacted by Network Rail who say they are planning for a possible surge in passenger usage on the national railway system on Monday 11th May as a side-effect of the Prime Minister's statement scheduled for 19:00 hours, 10th May in respect of COVID -19. These measures may obviously also impact on other rail services and London Underground.

RMT continues to demand assurances on social distancing

Dear RMT members (London Transport Region)

 As you will see below in our press release, the RMT has concerns re next Monday 11th May being the start of government led mobilisation across Britain’s railways.

Accordingly I immediately wrote to LUL, the Managing Director, specifically in relation to all TfL. The MD confirmed explicitly that this is not the case for TfL and their services, that their planning date (which is not fixed 100%) is still the 18th of May.

Tube union RMT on leaked report showing impact of maintaining social distancing on London Underground

Commenting on a leaked report showing the impact of maintaining social distancing on London Underground, RMT General Secretary Mick Cash said;

"The report leaked this morning to the BBC exposing the impact on passenger numbers of maintaining Government social distancing guidelines on the tube is a wake up call to all those tub-thumping for a jacking up of transport services from May 18th without properly assessing the consequences.

Update 28 04 2020
