Ballot matrix prepared over SSL Point Care Signalling Department issues

Subject: BREACH OF AGREEMENT, SSL POINT CARE SIGNALLING DEPARTMENT – LONDON UNDERGROUND

That we note the meeting took place between our workplace representatives, Track & Signals Functional representatives, Senior Assistant General Secretary and members of the NEC following the resolution passed at our 2019 AGM, and the company are persisting with breaching of our agreements.

Accordingly, we instruct the General Secretary to prepare a ballot matrix of affected members and advise the company that a dispute situation now exists between our two organisations.

Urgent meeting called on Victoria Line

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

That we note the report from the Lead Officer; regarding the degrading by the company of the agreement reached at ACAS despite the union suspending Strike Action. London Underground's inability to manage its own lower echelon management and keep its house in order is its own sad affair until it impinges on the health, safety & welfare of its staff our members, and agreements once mutually reached with this union.

London Underground Pay 2019: RMT responds to latest offer

Dear RMT members,

Today myself and our reps met LUL to discuss pay 2019. The company made the offer as attached.

We immediately responded by saying that the RMT would seek to meet all our reps to discuss the offer. Therefore we cannot formally respond in this update. However, I stated that all pay deals in LUL are RPI linked in the past. Also, any banked rest days can only be taken in line with our agreements.

We still have some way to go in these pay talks.

As soon as our NEC has considered the position there will be a further update.

Thanks,
