Maintaining current staffing levels on LU

The following resolution submitted by Neasden Branch was carried unanimously at the Regional Council meeting on November 24th.

This region notes that London Underground has advocated a four year pay deal as a deal that provides stability for the company and its staff.Now that the pay deal has been accepted, this region calls for an agreement achieving the same stability,over the same timescale,regarding staff numbers.

We call upon RMT national and regional officers to now raise these points with LUL and seek an agreement that the establishment level of staff,for all grades covered by the pay deal,will not change during the period covered by the deal.

Should LUL refuse to enter into such an agreement RMT should consider taking strike action, in defense of jobs. Where possible, our call for such an agreement and any plans for strike action should be made in conjunction with other relevant Unions.
