RMT submitted the following comments to TfL / London Underground's consultation on its pay gap reports and plans.


RMT comments on TfL pay gap action plan (and associated reports)

Branch motion leads to important change

Let's talk about motions.

Last year a local representative discovered that period products varied not only in availability but also in price on their group.

Responding to this feedback from members, the rep raised the matter and discussed it at their local branch, Piccadilly & District West.

Report: TfL Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Forum, 9 June

TfL Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) Trade Union Engagement Forum, 9 June 2021

Report from Janine Booth (RMT)


After a long break, the Forum met on Teams on 9 June 2021. Janine Booth and Glen Hart attended on behalf of RMT. ASLEF, TSSA and Unite were also present, but other TfL unions were not. This forum is separate from the collective bargaining machinery, but more sharing of information between them would be helpful.
