Tube Bosses Refuse To Uphold "No Compulsory Redundancies" Agreement

We note the report from our lead officer.

We deplore the stated intention of the employer to refuse to:

  • allow transferring staff to join the TfL Pension Scheme;
  • uphold the settlement of the 2001 PPP dispute which includes ‘no compulsory redundancies’ and explicitly applies to all employees and all future employers; and
  • recognise RMT in departments into which our members are transferring

In accordance with the request of our lead officer, we instruct the General Secretary to obtain legal advice on these matters, to uphold the rights of our members.

We merge this file with INTEGRATION OF TUBE LINES INTO LONDON UNDERGROUND (LUL/15/10) and name the merged file PENSIONS, PASSES AND REINTEGRATION INTO TfL/LONDON UNDERGROUND – TUBE LINES.

London Transport Regional Council, branches and Tube Lines representatives to be advised.

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.
