RMT moves towards dispute as pay talks collapse

TUBE UNION RMT said today that it is moving into a ballot for strike action involving London Underground staff after crucial talks collapsed today with management refusing to offer any significant improvement to the pay and conditions of the workforce across the network.

Ballot preparations for 10,000 staff across all grades are now well advanced with the union saying it is angry and frustrated that a golden opportunity to come up with a positive offer has been blown by tube bosses today.

RMT General Secretary Mick Cash said:

Tube bosses have failed to offer an acceptable pay increase

NEGOTIATING MEETINGS - FIVE MONTHS OF DISCUSSION - NO ACCEPTABLE OFFER!

Dear Colleague,

Rates of Pay and Conditions of Service 2019 - London Underground (including Ex Tubelines Staff)

Since the 9th January your negotiation team Lead Officer John Leach and myself have been attempting to negotiate a fair increase to your rate of pay that recognises the contribution you have made to keeping the Tube, and indeed London running.

RMT to fight plan to privatise Tube waste collection

Tube union RMT said today that it will fight tooth and nail plans unveiled by London Underground to shunt out waste collection services to the private sector as part of the “Transformation Programme” of creeping cuts and privatisation being overseen by Labour Mayor Sadiq Khan.

RMT has been told that as well as an expected torrent of job cuts Tranformation will also involve privatising bin collection and transportation in the outer area from Zone 3 – flying in the face of assurances from Mayor Khan that there would be no extension of privatisation on his watch as London Mayor.
