RMT Rejects London Underground Olympics Offer

RMT General Grades Committee decision:

We note that a well-attended meeting of our London Underground representatives unanimously recommended rejection of London Underground’s Olympics offer, taking the firm view that any offer should be for all grades and that there should not be any changes to the rules governing working conditions set out in the Framework Agreements. We therefore reject London Underground’s offer.

We further note that talks with LUL will continue this week, and instruct our negotiators to seek a draft agreement which gives an adequate financial reward to all grades of London Underground employees (station and revenue control staff, drivers, service control staff, APD and MATS), and accepts no changes to any Framework Agreement. A progress report is to be placed in front of the GGC on Thursday 22 March.

Further, we note that the deal between LUL management and ASLEF - which this union does not support - has not been presented to the Company Council for ratification as required. We instruct the General Secretary to urgently obtain legal advice as to the validity of this attempt to impose on our members changes to their terms and conditions of employment without their consent.

London Transport Regional Council and branches to be advised.
