Jubilee News April 2020: bosses plan to impose a 4 minute train service

Tube bosses have announced plans to impose a 4 minute timetable on the Jubilee Line in a matter of days. At a time when we are risking our lives and that of our families to come to work; it is both unnecessary and an insult to us to expect us to operate such a high level of service throughout the day when trains are frequently empty.

Jubilee South branch passes motion against Boris Johnson's no deal Brexit plan

Jubilee South branch has passed a motion following Prime Minister Boris Johnson's decision to prorogue parliament in order to stifle action by MPs to attempt to block a no deal Brexit.

The motion

This branch notes Boris Johnson’s attempt to suspend Parliament, with royal assent, in order to force through a no-deal Brexit.

This branch believes that such a no-deal Brexit will have a significantly detrimental impact on our members’ lives, especially our migrant members.

RMT winning for tube drivers: SPAD CDI thrown out

- Please download the attached newsletter.

RMT train driver Mulu Tumzghi faced termination at CDI following a SPAD in Neasden depot. The RMT went into dispute and fought his case and now this unnecessary disciplinary has been thrown out. Mulu is back at work as a train driver because he is a member of the RMT, the train drivers union.

Mulu should never have faced a a disciplinary charge: his was not an aggravated SPAD. Mulu was honest about what happened and followed instructions as soon as he was aware of his error.

More Transformation Announced

On Monday 18th March, RMT reps from several Functional Councils (MATS, Service Control, Engineering, Fleet) were told that plans for further reorganisation on London Underground would begin on Monday 25th March. We were not given any further information until yesterday (21st March) when we were invited to attend a large number of staff briefings in different areas of the company.

LU Pay Talks Update

The third day of London Underground pay talks took place yesterday (Wednesday 13th March). RMT Regional Organiser, John Leach, attended with reps from the seven Functional Councils RMT has recognition on. The company had previously asked us to remove a number of items from our pay claim before they would make us a financial offer. We refused this request and returned yesterday to continue to engage in meaningful talks with the company. There were discussions about improving staff travel facilities and also around our demand for a 32 hour, 4 day working week.
