TfL Reps Discuss New Christmas Arrangements Policy

We note the correspondence from Transport for London. However, having spoken to our representatives, we understand that although the policy may be the same as in previous years, the practice has abruptly changed.

We instruct the General Secretary to obtain the views of our TfL no.1 branch on this matter and place these in front of us.

London Transport Regional Council and TfL no.1 branch to be advised.

London Underground's New 'Engagement' Survey

We note the correspondence from London Underground Ltd advising the launch of a new, annual, TfL-wide employee engagement survey called Viewpoint. We note that the results of the first of these is due in April 2013, and instruct the General Secretary to write to London Underground Ltd and TfL seeking their confirmation that no changes to our members’ conditions of employment that are not agreed with this union will be announced or imposed before the results are available.

TFL And Tube Lines Pensions Compared

From RMT General Secretary Bob Crow

As you will be aware the dispute with Tube Lines management regarding pension and travel equality will be reaching a significant stage over the Christmas period as a result of possible further industrial action. It is therefore important that members are fully aware of the issues involved so that they can make an informed decision when supporting this action.

RMT Pushes For Members To Be Allowed Representation At Occupational Health

We note the resolution from our London Transport Regional Council, and support its view that members should be entitled to representation at Occupational Health appointments.

We instruct the General Secretary to ensure that this matter is raised with the employer(s) in line with this resolution, and to obtain a report as to whether our members in other companies have such rights.

Developments to be placed in front of us.

TfL Changes To New Years Working Arrangements Concerns RMT

We note the correspondence from Transport for London, and that for the most part, arrangements are the same as in previous year. However, following consultation with our representatives, we further note that TfL intends to change its practice regarding staff who volunteer to work additional duties assisting the public on New Year’s Eve, to the detriment of our members, compelling them to take a day’s leave when they previously did not have to.

We therefore instruct the General Secretary to take this up with the employer as a matter of urgency.

Save The London Transport Museum
