RMT slams TfL and LUL for “rank hypocrisy” on pay as 123 managers scoop over £100,000 a year

TUBE UNION RMT today slammed senior tube bosses for “rank hypocrisy” on pay as figures from Transport For London’s annual report showed that 123 managers are now earning more than £100,000 a year.

Those same managers have been leading the assault on RMT members who have voted to strike over a five year pay deal which would almost certainly amount to a pay cut well into the next decade and over plans to impose compulsory redundancies.

The pay figures show that five TfL/LUL chiefs earn more than a quarter of a million pounds a year plus bonuses. Fifteen TfL bosses, including the director of marketing, earn more than the Prime Minister.

“Those very same managers who have been attacking our members over pay and job security, and who have turned a blind eye to the bullying culture now rife on the Underground, have scooped the jackpot when it comes to their own pay and bonuses,” Bob Crow RMT general secretary said.

“These figures will only heighten the anger amongst RMT members who have voted overwhelmingly to strike over attempts to impose pay cuts and compulsory redundancies and over the bullying and harassment of staff.”

“Industrial relations with TfL and LUL have completely broken down. Our members remain solid in their support for the 48 hours of strike action which will commence at 18.59 hours on Tuesday 9th June,” Bob Crow said.
