London Underground Pay talks update

Dear RMT members 

Today myself with RMT reps, and the other Trade Unions met LUL face to face for the 6th meeting we’ve had in this years Pay talks.

Despite our strong representation in the meeting the company made no revised/ improved  offer. Rather they once again pleaded poverty. We told them in no uncertain terms that our members would not be paying for either the government or the mayor's financial starvation or incompetence.

At the end of the day long meeting LUL said they were preparing a revised offer and that they would send it to us next Thursday 30th.

Blog: Staff Our Stations

It has been a month since the station grades conference and the launch of “Staff our Stations”. The launch of this initiative has a truly national feel with national implications that will affect people up and down the land. This is also an initiative that has gathered momentum locally. TFL have already requested a FOI (Freedom of Information) to the gather the statistics on the amount of time that stations are left derelict of staff and this equates to approx 5 hours each day for every day of the year.
