Defending activists

The RMT always defends members, activists and reps from management attacks. We won't let the bosses make hostages of members during disputes, or to unfairly attack us at any time.

Defend Bro Fasoro

We note the report from our Lead Officer regarding the thinly disguised disgraceful third party interference by ABM which led to the sacking of Bro Fasoro by his agency Premier Work Support for trades union activity; and put on record now that the RMT will consider every avenue to ensure our brothers ability to undertake lawful trades union activity is remedied and he is reinstated without any detriment.

Executive decision on Picc Line Workshop staff action

We salute the determination of our Members in the rock solid ballot turnout and yes vote in their resolve to halt the attempted introduction of a two-tier work force in the LU Piccadilly Line Fleet area; with all the detriments encapsulated for our present members; and to seek proper ongoing employment for future members joining the company.

We also note the report from our Lead Officer and that some movement was secured at yesterday’s Director level meeting; but not enough in terms of our Members aspirations.

Piccadilly Line drivers ballot prepared

A ballot for strike action of drivers on the Piccadilly Line is being prepared. The dispute involves issues over breach of procedure, mistreatment of a line representatives, unfair disciplinary action and issues surrounding safety and training.

Regional Organiser's update: positive progress in Piccadilly Line dispute

Today myself and RMT line reps, along with aslef met with Directors and Piccadilly management face to face at Acas to hammer out improvements on key industrial issues effecting our members in this dispute. SPADS, Discipline, the Greivance proceedure , performance management and a commitment to better Industrial relations were discussed. We belive that it was a positive meeting and have agreed to track and review commitments given to the unions by LUL We have also agreed that all parties will sign up to statement to improve industrial relations on the line.

NO TO JOB CUTS AND TRADE UNION VICTIMISATION AT LONDON MET

Recently announced compulsory redundancies of permanent faculty staff, and other recent job losses resulting through the removal of all teaching hours from some long serving HPL (Hourly Paid Lecturer) staff, at London Metropolitan University.
We believe that these lecturer job cuts will directly negatively impact on the student experience. This is particularly problematic as the university attempts to make itself more attractive to potential applicants and provide an enhanced service to its existing students.
