Tube Warning As Sex Offences Up 35%

RMT slams Mayor for ignoring union warnings as TFL confirms today that sex offences have risen by 35% in a year
General Secretary Mick Cash said.

"RMT warned right from the off that cash led cuts to station staffing would turn London Underground into a criminals paradise and those who ignored those warnings, and in particular Mayor Boris Johnson, should be hanging their heads in shame today, apologising to Londoners and reversing their lethal cuts programme.

TfL Unions - Working Together On Pay

Unions in TfL are making concerted efforts to schedule pay talks with TfL management, although no dates have yet been confirmed.

Over the last two weeks TfL Unions have held over twenty well-attended workplace meetings on pay across TfL, with more still to take place in the London Transport Museum and Dial-A-Ride. Feedback from members and non-members at these meetings tells us that the key aspects of this year’s pay talks are:

  • A negotiated, consolidated pay rise for all employees
  • Pay comparability across all parts of TfL

The disgraceful treatment of employees continues unabated.

The disgraceful treatment of employees continues unabated.

Our cleaners all over the combine are having to contend with bullying and intimidating managers who routinely abuse agreed policies and procedures including;

• Grievances unheard
• pay illegally deducted
• pay slips not provided
• victimisation
• race discrimination
• targeting of RMT trade union reps for their trade union activities.
