Your Rights Should Transfer With You

RMT General Grades Committee decision:

We note the report from our Regional Organiser. As staff transfer from the employment of London Underground Ltd to TfL, management are refusing to accept that policies and procedures transfer with them under TUPE. This will lead to a weakening of our members’ rights, exactly the situation that the TUPE regulations purport to prevent.

We note that the General Secretary has already requested a legal opinion on this, and that TSSA is also doing so. We instruct the General Secretary to ask the TSSA that the two unions share their legal advice. This matter to be placed back in front of us once the legal advice has been received and shared.

London Transport Regional Council and TfL no.1 branch to be advised.
