RMT Insists TfL Pay Rise Must Be Paid To All

We note that RMT did not endorse the two-year pay deal accepted by the other trade unions.

We further note the inadequacies of this deal, in particular the non-payment of the 0.5% above-RPI element of the 2012 rise to some grades, and the condition attached to the 0.5% above-inflation element of the 2013 rise that the unions must accept a new performance related pay policy.

We further note that Transport for London cancelled a planned meeting to discuss the new PRP policy.

We instruct the lead officer to write to TfL reiterating this union’s stance that the RPI+0.5% pay rise must be applied in both years without discrimination and without conditions, and insisting that it convene the planned meeting.

Further, we instruct the General Secretary to place our TfL no.1 branch’s organising plan on the file, and to map our membership in Transport for London.

Reports and developments to be placed in front of us.

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.
