News, reports and information for TfL staff

Your Rights Should Transfer With You

RMT General Grades Committee decision:

We note the report from our Regional Organiser. As staff transfer from the employment of London Underground Ltd to TfL, management are refusing to accept that policies and procedures transfer with them under TUPE. This will lead to a weakening of our members’ rights, exactly the situation that the TUPE regulations purport to prevent.

Pay: It's Alright for Some

While our employers expect us to accept pay "rises" that are in some cases below inflation, and in others just fractionally above, here is what TfL, London Underground and Crossrail bosses are "earning" (Total remuneration excluding pension contributions, 2010/11) :

  • Peter Hendy, Commissioner: £332,276
  • Steve Allen, Managing Director, Finance: £268,982
  • Mike Brown, Managing Director, London Underground: £285,230
  • Howard Carter, General Counsel: £219,156
  • Leon Daniels, Managing Director, Surface Transport: £97,000

Transferred Staff Get 6-7.5% Pay Rise

RMT General Grades Committee decision:

We note the agreement from Transport for London that staff recently transferred from London Underground will receive the same pay award as other TfL employees, receiving a rise of between 6% and 7.5%. We endorse our Regional Organiser’s recommendation that we accept this.

This offer underlines the inadequacy of other pay offers in companies either owned or contracted/franchised by TfL, such as London Underground and Alstom Metro Trains.

We therefore instruct the General Secretary to:

Olympic Reward and Recognition - London Underground / TfL

RMT General Grades Committee decision:

The General Secretary is instructed to get a report from the Regional Organiser on the up to date position on the negotiations on LUL/TFL and all other companies working under auspices of TFL.

We change the file to now read TFL instead of LUL and we put Serco Docklands file on this main file.

Transfer: Carillion to TfL

RMT General Grades Committee decision:

We note the legal advice regarding the problems that our Regional Organiser has experienced in obtaining information about this transfer. As recommended by our legal advisor, we instruct the General Secretary to make a formal request for disclosure of the minutes of all relevant meetings leading up to transfer. We also instruct the General Secretary to obtain from the Regional Organiser a report of any outstanding issues about which our members feel aggrieved.

Privilege Travel - TfL / London Underground

RMT General Grades Committee decision:

We note that our members have faced stealth increases in charges for family members who have privilege travel entitlements, and note our previous decision to raise this issue with management in order to secure the return of previous arrangements.

We note the report from our Regional Organiser and accept his recommendation that this issue be included in our pay and conditions claim to TfL in 2012. We instruct the General Secretary to ensure that this happens.

Pay and Conditions - TfL

Branches will be aware that we are now in the third year of TFL’s three-year pay settlement. We agreed for this year that increase for the ‘Achieved’ rating would be February RPI + 0.5%. The February RPI figure has now been confirmed as 5.5%. Therefore for those who receive the ‘Achieved’ rating, the award is 6% effective as of 1st April 2011, which is payable in July 2011. This applies to members who working in TFL Corporate, Surface Transport and Rail for London Limited who are in Pay bands 1-3, as well as those who TUPED into TFL from other organisations.
