Newsletter: April pay claim update for stations

- Please download and distribute the attached newsletter at your station, and share this article online.

After five days of “negotiation”, London Underground has rejected all the demands in RMT’s pay claim. LU has made an “offer”, which is for a one-year deal on pay only, proposing an RPI percentage increase (currently 2.5%), and which is contingent on the union dropping all demands in our claim, including the demand for a flat-rate pay increase and a 32-hour working week.

Tube stations left unstaffed for 7,500 hours in 2018

The RMT has submitted a Freedom of Information request that has revealed that stations were left unstaffed on at least 863 occasions last year, totalling 7490 hours.

This comes in spite of London Underground's promise following the much hated 'Fit for the Future' job cuts plan that all stations would be staffed during traffic hours.

LU Pay Talks Update

The third day of London Underground pay talks took place yesterday (Wednesday 13th March). RMT Regional Organiser, John Leach, attended with reps from the seven Functional Councils RMT has recognition on. The company had previously asked us to remove a number of items from our pay claim before they would make us a financial offer. We refused this request and returned yesterday to continue to engage in meaningful talks with the company. There were discussions about improving staff travel facilities and also around our demand for a 32 hour, 4 day working week.
