RMT is against age discrimination

Retirement at 65 - Does LU Comply with the Law?

RMT General Grades Committee decision:

We note our Regional Organiser’s report that London Underground appears to be in compliance with age discrimination legislation. We instruct the General Secretary to obtain legal advice to confirm this.

We also note our Regional Organiser’s recommendation that our membership database be equipped to ‘flag up’ members six months before their 65th birthday and send them a letter outlining their rights. We refer this suggestion to Council of Executives.
