LONDON TRANSPORT UNION RMT today wrote to London Mayor Sadiq Khan demanding that he come clean on what plans TfL are putting to the government in order to secure more funding in March. 

As part of the deal made at the end of last year, Sadiq Khan agreed to submit to the DfT proposals for returning the body to ‘financial sustainability’ following the devastation of its finances by the Covid-19 pandemic. This plan was submitted to the DfT yesterday but unions have not yet seen them.

RMT has advised TfL/LUL at the highest level that any attempt to attack members' jobs or conditions will be met with industrial action

INDEPENDENT PANEL REVIEW - TRANSPORT FOR LONDON (TFL/15/4)

 Further to my previous Circular (IR/523/20, 23rd December 2020), the following resolution was received from our Jubilee South Branch:-

TfL financial review "a disgraceful document that seeks to justify imposing job cuts"

22nd December 2020

Dear Colleague,

INDEPENDENT PANEL REVIEW - TRANSPORT FOR LONDON

TfL recently released the full report from the Independent Panel Review, commissioned by the Mayor, which focuses on increased funding and cost-savings. RMT attended a meeting regarding the report and the Union has already made it clear to TfL that this review is an attack on staff.

RMT responds to 'independent panel' report on TfL finances

Subject: INDEPENDENT PANEL REVIEW – TRANSPORT FOR LONDON

“That we note the report from our lead officer.

The report of the so-called “independent Panel” is a disgraceful document that seeks to justify imposing job cuts, transport service cuts and additional taxation onto the working class of London. RMT rejects the report entirely and demands that the mayor immediately does the same and undertakes not to act on any of the report’s findings.

Sodexo ditches compulsory redundancy plan following RMT ballot threat

REORGANISATION AND JOB CUTS - SODEXO (TFL CONTRACT) (LUL/15/4)

Further to my previous Circular (IR/441/20, 3rd November 2020), I advised Sodexo that a dispute situation existed over its restructuring plans including 30 job cuts across TfL sites. The Lead Officer then met with the Company and it has now been confirmed that Sodexo no longer intends to make any compulsory redundancies.

Video: fighting Sodexo job cuts

RMT activist Dan Randell talks about the job cuts on Sodexo's TfL contract which could have seen 30 people made redundant. 

However, the RMT organised a fightback which saw a deal reached that there would be no compulsory redundancies, but instead a job with Sodexo for all those who wanted to stay.

Sodexo workers are encouraged to join the RMT. The more people who are with us, the stronger we will all be.
