I and TFC reps attended ACAS today regarding the Night Tube dispute. It was confirmed that rosters currently produced and rejected by local reps on the Central and Victoria Lines were going to be those used when Night Tube returns which although still unconfirmed could be imminent. RMT reiterated the terms of the dispute which are 1. NT should be voluntary 2. There should be no increase in weekend working. 3. Shift patterns should not destroy our members' work life balance. 4. Over 200 Part Time positions should not be abolished.

RMT Trains' Functional Council response to London Underground's funding crisis 'engagement' sessions.

We have listened carefully to your presentations over the past month.

You have said that, prior to COVID-19, LUL was on schedule to provide an economically viable service to not only run Tube services but to subsidise other passenger services. This all changed as a direct result of the first lockdown in March 2020.
