RMT to ballot all ABM cleaner members for Strike Action

Subject: RATES OF PAY AND CONDITIONS OF SERVICE, CLEANERS – ABM (LU CONTRACT)

That we note the report from our Lead Officer following the meeting with our ABM union representatives; and that no movement on any of our matters raised have been addressed by the company. We therefore instruct the General Secretary to advise the company that we are in dispute over their failure to provide free staff travel, a company wide sick pay scheme
or decent company pension.

RMT moves towards dispute as pay talks collapse

TUBE UNION RMT said today that it is moving into a ballot for strike action involving London Underground staff after crucial talks collapsed today with management refusing to offer any significant improvement to the pay and conditions of the workforce across the network.

Ballot preparations for 10,000 staff across all grades are now well advanced with the union saying it is angry and frustrated that a golden opportunity to come up with a positive offer has been blown by tube bosses today.

RMT General Secretary Mick Cash said:

Tube bosses plan to close all Revenue Control line offices

RMT revenue reps are to discuss all options including possible industrial action over LULs appalling decision to close all Line Revenue Offices.

The proposal is that all RCIs will be based at Baker Street in the current revenue control office. This includes all locker, shower and PC access only being available at Baker Street, an office that barely suits 40 odd people there now.

With nearly 140 RCIs being planned to move there , it’s a case of treating RCIs like sardines. It also means journey times of up to an hour to access mess facility’s and lockers.

RMT train reps call for review into insufficient driver numbers

STAFFING LEVELS
Update May 3rd 2019

Today your RMT TFC reps met with LUL to discuss levels on trains; the current numbers were agreed as part of the 2009 Agreement.

The formula used to determine which “Band” a depot fell in was based on various factors, including the number of duties at a depot, the position of the depot on the line, the frequency of trains, number of remote booking locations and the proximity of the train crew to a rolling stock depot.
