The action called in January

19th January 2022

Dear Colleagues,


Further to my previous Circular (IR/010/22, 13th January 2022), our Reps attended a meeting last week to discuss the solid mandate for action which members returned in the recent ballot. Following further discussions with level 2 reps in each function, the National Executive Committee has considered this matter and taken the decision to call industrial action as detailed below.

From 00:01 hours on Wednesday 2nd February 2022, all members are instructed as follows:-

Not to familiarise staff who do not usually work at a location

No training of staff for roles that are outside of their normal substantive role

No undertaking of training that is outside of a member's normal substantive role

Members have shown in the ballot that they are prepared to stand together to resist attacks on jobs, pensions and working arrangements and I urge all LUL members to support the above actions. It is disgraceful that management have been offered a £12m bonus pot to impose these attacks on our terms and conditions rather than rewarding members for their commitment to delivering essential services throughout the Covid-19 pandemic and beyond.

The Union is determined that our simple and straightforward demands for jobs, pensions and agreements to be protected are met and RMT is currently considering options for further action if these commitments are not forthcoming.

The Union has demanded talks with the London Mayor and Department for Transport in order to seek a way forward and obtain suitable guarantees on these issues and I will keep Branches advised of all further developments.

Yours sincerely,

Michael Lynch
General Secretary
