Night Tube station staff survey

London Underground is reviewing the experience of the first two years of Night Tube on stations, and RMT is putting forward key demands to improve Night Tube station staff’s working conditions. We are carrying out this survey to gather evidence in support of these demands, to check that you support them, and to identify other issues that you would like the union to raise. We will only use your responses for these purposes. 

You can have your say by completing this survey.

RMT Executive responds to Finsbury Park branch Night Tube motion


We note the resolution from our Finsbury Park Branch regarding the unsatisfactory treatment of our members, the failure of the company to adhere to their agreements and the resulting call for a ballot for industrial action, and refer this matter into our Southern Sub Committee for examination and report.

RMT asks management to reconsider offer to leapfrogged Night Tube drivers


Today the RMT and ASLEF met with Management concerning the leap-frogged drivers situation.

Management put a proposal that all 23 affected leap-frogged drivers would receive a days pay for every week that they were leap-frogged.

Management said that this was a "gratis payment" as the leap-frogged drivers did not work full-time during this period and it would be unfair to pay them for work that they never did.

Night Tube and London Overground

On 15 September, TfL announced a restructuring of London Overground to reduce staff, close ticket offices, and run overnight service. This is on top of plans already afoot to withdraw Overground staff from Underground stations outside weekday peak hours.

These proposals will obviously have an impact on London Underground stations which interchange with London Overground, so RMT is insisting to LUL that it tells the union the details and discusses potential issues. Make sure that you talk to your RMT rep or go to your branch meeting to voice your concerns.
