As overtime ban bites Tube bosses agree to additional station jobs at ACAS talks

Dear RMT members

Today myself and senior RMT Stations reps, alongside TSSA, attended talks at ACAS.

LUL have confirmed that they will put additional roles / jobs back into Underground stations. We have agreed, on that basis, to take part in 7 day review to identify exactly where those jobs will be allocated.

LUL confirmed that recruitment had started and they already have a starting pool of CSAs to offer additional jobs to.

Say no to overtime - support the overtime ban - 0001hrs 23November 2016


This matter has been considered by the National Executive Committee, which has taken the decision to call action and instruct ALL LUL STATION & REVENUE members NOT TO WORK ANY OVERTIME OR REST DAYS from 00:01 hours on Wednesday 23rd November 2016 until further notice.

Big votes for action in two separate disputes on London Underground

Tube union RMT confirmed today that balloting has concluded in two separate disputes on London Underground with massive votes for action being recorded in both. Both disputes, tube station staff and Piccadilly Line drivers, have safety of passengers and staff at their core.

The disputes are:

CSM2 job under threat

The CSM2 job is now is seriously under threat as a result of some LU Area Managers lobbying hard behind the scenes for its abolition. RMT knows the CSM2 grade doesn't work - but not for the reasons being touted by managers. One idea being seriously canvassed is the merging of adjacent CSM2-type areas, with stations to be run by a CSS in exactly the same way as an SS2 used to until LU stupidly abolished SS grades to drive down pay, and this would likely be a CSS2; there are usually no Ops Rooms.

RMT to ballot for strike over safety critical job cuts

London Underground is facing renewed industrial action on its stations, tube union RMT confirmed today.

Station staff members of the Rail, Maritime and Transport Workers Unions (RMT) will be balloted for strike action and action short of strike action in an on-going battle over job numbers, the critical safety role of control rooms, forced displacement of staff, grading and a crisis resulting from London Undergrounds closure of ticket offices.

Latest from Company Council Sub Group (CCSG) Talks

Transfer & Promotion (T&P)

Following months of talks in which RMT has out the issue of avoiding multiole displacements following FftF, LU has finally issued a revised proposla that guarantees no-one will be displaced sideways. What this means is that anyone covering down one grade can only be displaced into their permanent substantive position. This removes the threat, contained in all of LU's T&P proposals until now, that members could be dislaced up to five times as LU shuffled us about to get rid of cover downs and over establishment positions.

Preparations in place for Fit for the Future ballot


Further to my previous Circular (IR/196/16, 15th July 2016), members will recall the previous National Executive Committee to organise a meeting of Stations Reps to review the implementation of Fit for the Future – Stations to discuss our strategy, including possible industrial action.
