Tube bosses plan to close all Revenue Control line offices

RMT revenue reps are to discuss all options including possible industrial action over LULs appalling decision to close all Line Revenue Offices.

The proposal is that all RCIs will be based at Baker Street in the current revenue control office. This includes all locker, shower and PC access only being available at Baker Street, an office that barely suits 40 odd people there now.

With nearly 140 RCIs being planned to move there , it’s a case of treating RCIs like sardines. It also means journey times of up to an hour to access mess facility’s and lockers.

London Underground Pay talks update

Dear RMT members 

Today myself with RMT reps, and the other Trade Unions met LUL face to face for the 6th meeting we’ve had in this years Pay talks.

Despite our strong representation in the meeting the company made no revised/ improved  offer. Rather they once again pleaded poverty. We told them in no uncertain terms that our members would not be paying for either the government or the mayor's financial starvation or incompetence.

At the end of the day long meeting LUL said they were preparing a revised offer and that they would send it to us next Thursday 30th.
