RMT to ballot members as Tube bosses pay offer 'falls short of our aspirations'

Subject: RATES OF PAY & CONDITIONS OF SERVICE 2019 – LONDON UNDERGROUND

That we note the report from the Lead Officer, that the company has continued to disregard our claims for our low paid members, ignored our claim for the shorter working week and other parts of our submission apart from making a stand-alone offer on pay which falls short of our aspirations.

To add insult to injury the company has not made any offer whatsoever to our ex-Tube Lines members or held one single pay negotiations meeting with them.
