Oyster Card Proposed Minimum £5 Top-Up LUL

From RMT official circular IR/86/09, dated 17th March 2009

I have been informed that LUL are trialling a minimum £5 Oyster top – up. LUL are stating that this is to help commuters to speed up their journey and shorten queues.

RMT’s view is that this is clearly targeted at poor people including pensioners and the unemployed.

While claiming to be an attempt to cut queues it is in fact part of an attempt to find ways of reducing the services to passengers and to undermine ticket offices.

Yours Sincerely

Bob Crow General Secretary

'RMT Platform' 16 March 2009 - Call This A Pay Offer?!

The new issue of 'RMT Platform' - RMT's newsletter for London Underground stations and revenue staff - condemns LUL's five-year pay 'offer', and urges all members to vote Yes in RMT's ballot for industrial action and to get involved in the union's campaigning.

It also reports on the pressure managers are putting on ticket sellers, advises members to submit grievances against snow day deductions, outlines the process for lifting the limit on transfer and promotion nominations and celebrates a victory for common sense and RMT!

'RMT Platform' 5 November 2008: LUL Prepares to Displace CSAs

The new issue of our 'RMT Platform' newsletter for London Underground station and revenue staff warns of LUL's intention to displace 'over-establishment' CSAs away from their current stations and use them as 'line reserves', and urges staff to prepare to fight against this move. It also reveals - and condemns - management's ultimatum that we must reduce RCI reps before they will recognise reps in the SRT.
