RMT Appalled By Poor Pay Rise Offered To TfL Members; Following No Olympic Bonus

We note the report from our representatives’ meeting, and are appalled that many of our members have received an RPI-only pay rise for this year while their workmates on both TfL and LUL have received RPI+0.5%. This adds insult to the injury of having received no Olympics payment.

We note that RMT rejected this pay deal but that other trade unions agreed it.

We instruct the General Secretary to:

  • raise this issue with TfL as a matter of urgency, and escalate it through the machinery as far as is necessary
  • urge the other trade unions to withdraw their agreement in light of this development
  • obtain a report on our TfL no.1 branch's workplace campaigning on the issue of pay

This issue is to be placed in front of us in the event of any developments, and in any case within 14 days.

London Transport Regional Council and branches to be advised.

What is a National Executive Committee decision?

This article is an 'executive decision' which has been written by the RMT National Executive Committee. The National Executive is the union's governing body in between AGMs. Its decisions set out what the union will do on a particular issue.

These decisions can often be brief, and may be one of several passed over a period of time. To get a better understanding or find out more information about what the RMT is doing, speak to your rep or attend your branch or Regional Council meeting.
