RMT comments on TfL pay gap action plan (and associated reports)

SUMMARY:

The pay gap reports show that the persistence (and in some aspects, worsening) of pay disadvantage experienced by women, black, ethnic minority and disabled workers arises from two main areas:

Final, final pay rise agreed following RMT industrial determination

Tube union, RMT secured a pay rise on LU following threats of mass strike action.

Representing around 10,000 members on the network, the lowest paid will see their wages rise by between 8-10%.

Other workers will see a 5% rise with consolidated payments of £1000.

Those members on less than £40,000 will get an additional consolidated payment.

RMT also secured progress towards enhanced travel facilities on national rail services.

RMT calls for unconditional Tube strike talks with mayor and LU bosses

TUBE UNION RMT today called on the London Mayor and Transport for London (TfL) to enter unconditional talks hosted by the conciliation service ACAS to avert strike action scheduled for later this week.

The union had been invited to talks with TfL earlier this week after London Underground workers backed rolling strike action by over 90 per cent against a below inflation pay offer.

The union also wants to see full staff travel facilities for all tube workers restored to prevent to the creation of a two-tier workforce.

Further to my previous Circular (IR/341/23, 15th November 2023), further negotiations have now been held and the company has proposed an improved offer of 6% backdated to the pay anniversary of May 2023. This was discussed at a meeting of members last week at which a majority were clearly in favour of accepting. Additionally, representatives canvassed the opinions of those not in attendance and this also showed a majority in favour of accepting the deal.
