RMT Executive decisions

Decisions of RMT's Council of Executives, and of RMT's General Grades Committee (the section of the Council of Executives which deals with industrial matters for railway and other non-shipping grades)

Metropolitan South group to be balloted over management bullying

Subject: BULLYING BY MANAGEMENT, METROPOLITAN LINE SOUTH COVER GROUP – LONDON UNDERGROUND

We note the report from the Lead Officer, and that despite the Stations & Revenue Functional Council Reps best efforts in raising these matters with the company they have remained belligerent and:

Refused to re-instate Bro Mahoney and drop the misplaced charges against him.
Continue to victimise our Rep Bro Rollinger and Bro Glasstone.

Body cameras

That we note the concerns of our Piccadilly & District West Branch and the London Transport Regional Council regarding the body cam trial due to take place at Earl’s
Court; and instruct the General Secretary to place a report from the Lead Officer in front of this NEC without delay.

Further; we instruct the General Secretary to circulate our recently drawn up RMT Body Cam Policy to the Stations Safety & Functional Council reps and all LT Region branches.

All London Transport Region branches and the London Transport Regional Council to be advised.

RMT calls on London mayor to ensure cleaners wages are paid

Subject: NON-PAYMENT OF WAGES – PREMIER WORK SUPPORT (ABM CONTRACT)

That we note the completely unacceptable treatment of our cleaner members; getting paid on time for work done is one requirement that is sacrosanct to all our members, and we will not allow this non-payment of wages to continue or responsibility for this to be avoided by Premier Work Support or ABM via some paper-thin manoeuvre, where each blame the other and our members rights fall down between the two!

Picc strike action suspended

Subject: BREAKDOWN IN INDUSTRIAL RELATIONS, TRAIN OPERATORS, PICCADILLY LINE – LONDON UNDERGROUND

That we note the report from the Lead Officer regarding last Friday’s members and reps meeting; where the view was that we should suspend the strike action for tomorrow due to progress made at ACAS, with the company now seemingly abiding by agreements and implementing them.

Ballot matrix prepared over degraded, substandard conditions at Morden depot

Subject: MORDEN DEPOT – GARTH HOUSE

That we note the resolution from our London Transport Regional Council regarding the degraded, sub-standard work conditions and welfare facilities at Morden Depot and the company’s unwillingness to address these most basic and necessary provisions.

We also note the matter is to be raised at a coming Trains Safety Council meeting, and instruct the General Secretary to place an updated report in front of this NEC following this meeting.

ABM threaten RMT over job massacre article

Subject: STAFFING LEVELS – ABM (LONDON UNDERGROUND CONTRACT)

Threats from ABM Regarding Alleged “Defamation”!

That we note a letter has been received from the Company, that while not directly refuting our position that ABM are seeking to reduce the workforce by almost a third, makes the direct threat “to take further action” against the union if we address this issue in a publication ever again!

LU: reinstate brother Mahoney or we will ballot for industrial action

Subject: BULLYING BY MANAGEMENT, METROPOLITAN LINE SOUTH COVER GROUP – LONDON UNDERGROUND

That we note the report from our Lead Officer; that the issues of bullying and maltreatment of our members remains unresolved.

We also note the company has undertaken to review the dismissal of Bro Mahoney, and state here and now that unless Bro Mahoney is re-instated without delay; this union will issue them the notice and commence a ballot of our members for industrial action(s).

Dispute arises as Tube bosses leave duties uncovered

Subject: DUTIES/SHIFT COVERAGE, BAKERLOO LINE SOUTH GROUP – LONDON UNDERGROUND

That we note the report from the Lead Officer regarding talks with the company; and that we have had no satisfactory undertaking that duties will be sufficiently covered. It actually appears to be the case that if they could get away with skeleton staffing all stations they would!

This breaching of their own policy and procedure creates undue stress on our members and puts them and the travelling public at risk’ representing a breakdown in trust between the company, their staff and this union.

Alstom pay offer accepted

Subject: RATES OF PAY AND CONDITIONS OF SERVICE 2018 – ALSTOM METRO TRAINS

That we congratulate the members, reps and Lead Officer on securing an increased offer from the company with no strings; and instruct the General Secretary to inform the company that we are in acceptance of this offer.

Members to be advised by email and text.

LU Fleet Branch and the London Transport Regional Council to be advised.
