Alstom: RMT Rejects Below-Inflation Pay Offer

RMT General Grades Committee decision:

That we note the latest pay offer from Alstom, of 2.75% for this year and CPI+0.5% for next year, subject to a minimum of 2% and a maximum of just 3%. We note the report from our Regional Organiser, and also note that this is not a final offer.

Accordingly, we reject this offer, as it is below inflation for this year, and is very poor for Year 2, which includes the Olympic Games. The offer is unacceptable to our members.

We note that further negotiations are scheduled, and instruct the General Secretary to obtain a report on these negotiations once they have happened and to place this matter back in front of us.

LU Fleet branch and London Transport Regional Council to be advised.
