RMT Accepts Above-Inflation Pay Offer for ex-Alstom Staff

RMT General Grades Committee decision:

That we note that our previous decision of 15 June agreed to accept the pay offer from Tube Lines for former Alstom staff at Stratford Market depot, subject to the company accepting our Regional Organiser’s proposed amendments to the wording of the offer.

We note that the employer has now agreed to these amendments, and we therefore accept the offer. We note that this is a two-year pay offer of 5.6% in Year 1 and RPI+0.5% (minimum 0.5%) in Year 2, with agreement to set up a joint working party on harmonisation of terms, conditions and pay. Our amendments clarify that changes to rosters will be the subject of negotiations between management and union representatives.

We instruct the General Secretary to notify the company of our acceptance of the offer. We further instruct the General Secretary to produce a report within 28 days on the current status of pay claims and offers in all companies under the Transport for London remit.

London Transport Regional Council and relevant branches to be advised, and a letter to be sent to all members covered by this pay deal.
