Dispute arises as bosses' plan to cut 'train prep' schedule continues


Further to my previous Circular (IR/228/18, 10th May 2018), the Company has now been advised that a dispute situation exists over its unacceptable proposal to increase the Fleet train preparation schedule from every 24 hours to every 96 hours. Despite our best efforts, the Company has failed to engage in any meaningful consultation with RMT in line with our agreements and to further exacerbate the situation I understand a trial of the new arrangements is planned for April 2019.

Meeting arranged to discuss Central Line dispute


Further to my previous Circular (IR/506/18, 21st November 2018) a series of talks with the Company took place at ACAS before Christmas in an effort to seek a resolution to this dispute. There was some movement on the key issues and the National Executive Committee took the decision to suspend the strike action on Friday 21st and Saturday 22nd December 2018.

Victory for staffing is to the credit of RMT members, Reps and the Branch

A timescale for future meetings will be arranged at this initial meeting.
