Every Job Matters - Defending London Underground Jobs

 

Know Your Rights - Use Them Or Lose Them

KNOW YOU RIGHTS – USE THEM OR LOSE THEM!

It may not feel like it at times, but you have rights at work! Some are set down in law, some are company policies and agreements fought for by RMT.

These laws and rights cover issues such as:

  • working hours
  • breaks while you are at work
  • rest periods between duties
  • where you work
  • minimum staffing levels
  • time off for leave, sickness, caring responsibilities and other reasons
  • health and safety – including your right to refuse to work on the grounds of health and safety concerns

Broadsheet Created For Campaign Against Job Cuts

The RMTs new broadsheet 'We Can Stop Job Cuts' for the London Transport Region, is now available for distribution in workplaces. The RMT's London Region acting Regional Secretary said "Please could representatives make arrangements for collection accordingly for direct distribution into workplaces in accordance with the General Grades Committee’s decision. When you come, you will find a collection sheet and you are asked to put your name and workplace on it just so we know where the papers have gone.

We Can Stop Job Cuts

WE CAN STOP LONDON UNDERGROUND JOB CUTS - AND IMPROVE OUR LIVES AT WORK

On 18 November 2012, RMT marked the 25th anniversary of the King’s Cross fire, in which 31 people died. To prevent tragedies like this happening again, we must protect LU’s safety standards and staffing levels.

London’s Mayor and London Underground bosses intend to weaken safety rules and cut Tube jobs. RMT intends to defend and improve them.
