Every Job Matters - Strike Dates Announced

Dear Colleague,

EVERY JOB MATTERS – DEFENDING JOBS ON LONDON UNDERGROUND

WEEK OF ACTION – SUNDAY 7TH – SATURDAY 13TH FEBRUARY 2016

Further to previous correspondence where I advised you that RMT would be organising a Week of Action for our LUL Station Grades members between Sunday 7th and Saturday 13th February, the National Executive Committee has considered what form this action should take and instructs all RMT Station Grades NOT TO BOOK ON FOR SHIFTS between the following times:-

Station workers balloted to defend unfairly sacked disabled colleague

DISMISSAL, R. GARD, CSA, BOND STREET – LONDON UNDERGROUND (LUL/4/1) Further to my previous Circular (IR/276/15, 12th November 2015), members will recall the case of Sister Rachel Gard who suffers from type 1 diabetes and was recently dismissed from London Underground.

This matter has now been considered again by the National Executive Committee, which has noted the outcome of the Director’s review to uphold the decision to dismiss Sister Gard, and taken the decision to commence a ballot of our Customer Service Assistant members at Bond Street Station.

Tube workers to be balloted in defense of Glen hart

DISCIPLINARY, GLEN HART – LONDON UNDERGROUND (LUL/4/4)

Further to my previous Circular (IR/261, 29th October 2015), the National Executive Committee has considered a report from the Lead Officer and also noted from the LTRC that there is strong support for Glen from our members across all London Underground grades and taken the decision to conduct a ballot for strike action and action short of a strike.

Save ticket offices on LUL - email enquiries@travelwatch.org.uk

London Underground have failed to properly conduct a public consultation exercise over the closure of  ticket offices on the part of the network previously run by Silverlink, now LOROL.

They have set up an online email system to try and convince the regulators they are engaging with the public.

The RMT are absolutely against the closing of ticket offices and have conducted a near 2 year campaign to keep them.

We want to encourage all our members and their friends and families to take part in the consultation exercise.

RMT announce upcoming tube overtime ban for station workers

EVERY JOB MATTERS – DEFENDING JOBS ON LONDON UNDERGROUND (LUL/14/5)
 
Further to my previous Circular (IR/299/15, 4th December 2015) there remains a number of areas of concern over London Underground’s Fit for the Future Stations (FFFS) proposals and the Lead Officer has written to LUL seeking assurances that there will be no imposition of a new framework agreement, that staff will not be forced to sign new contracts and that rosters will not be imposed. At the time of writing we have not yet received a response from LUL.
