ACTION ON CENTRAL AND VICTORIA LINES REMAINS ON

TO ALL TRAIN OPERATORS AND INSTRUCTOR OPERATORS, CENTRAL, JUBILEE, NORTHERN, PICCADILLY & VICTORIA LINES AT LONDON UNDERGROUND

Dear Colleagues

IMPOSITION OF NIGHT TUBE DUTIES, TRAIN OPERATORS - LONDON UNDERGROUND

On Tuesday at ACAS your union offered to suspend the industrial action on the Central and Victoria lines, if LUL laid out a clear road map to move back to the pre-pandemic night tube arrangements. This proposal was rejected by management in talks.

London Underground claim that RMT refused ACAS talks incorrect

Dear RMT members

I’m getting fed up with all the not truths being peddled about RMT.

I’m told we refused to go to acas. This is not true and London Underground management know it.

Please see below and you will see an email I sent on the behalf of the RMT to the company last night where I stated, and I quote, "happy to attend ACAS to resolve the dispute. And are available to do so."
