RMT Steadfast Resolve Sees Contract Work Brought Back In House

BREAKDOWN IN INDUSTRIAL RELATIONS, EX-METRONET GRADES – LONDON UNDERGROUND (LUL/14/2)

Further to my previous Circular No. IR/42/14, 30th January 2014, talks aimed at resolving a range of issues affecting our ex-Metronet grades members have taken place at ACAS. These talks were positive and the General Grades Committee has noted the correspondence on file and that the LU Engineering Branch has indicated acceptance of the proposals.

Also that an agreement has been reached to hold a workshop in relation to some of these issues within six weeks of the signing off of this agreement and that a director led review of the incident management organisation will also take place within this time frame.

The GGC has congratulated the negotiating team for their steadfast resolve that also resulted in contract work being bought in house and has taken the decision to advise the Company of our acceptance of the proposals.
