LUL Pay Claim 2019

London Underground Pay 2019: RMT responds to latest offer

Dear RMT members,

Today myself and our reps met LUL to discuss pay 2019. The company made the offer as attached.

We immediately responded by saying that the RMT would seek to meet all our reps to discuss the offer. Therefore we cannot formally respond in this update. However, I stated that all pay deals in LUL are RPI linked in the past. Also, any banked rest days can only be taken in line with our agreements.

We still have some way to go in these pay talks.

As soon as our NEC has considered the position there will be a further update.

Thanks,

Branch motions on Tube pay offer

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

That we note and adopt the report from our Southern Sub-Committee and subsequent resolutions from our branches:

“This branch notes that, despite numerous meetings with LU over pay/conditions, we are still at an impasse, with the latest offer clearly not meeting RMT’s key demands.
This branch therefore calls on the NEC to immediately organise a ballot of all LU members for industrial action.” - Bakerloo Line Branch

Dear Colleagues,

RMT accuses Tube bosses of playing fast and loose in pay talks as union steps up preparations for a ballot

Tube union RMT today accused London Underground bosses of stringing staff along and playing fast and loose after an eighth day of pay talks yesterday failed to lever any king of meaningful offer out of the management side.

The union says it is both angry and frustrated at what it sees as blatant delaying tactics and is now stepping up preparations for a strike ballot across the tube network.

RMT General Secretary Mick Cash said;

RMT fighting for 'proper pay award and genuine improvements to your terms and conditions'

Dear Colleagues,

RATES OF PAY & CONDITIONS OF SERVICE 2019 - LONDON UNDERGROUND 

As you are aware, RMT is currently in dispute with LUL over the lack of a forthcoming suitable pay offer from the Company and LUL is aware that we are currently preparing to ballot you all for industrial action, up to and including strike action across the network, over this matter. We have made it abundantly clear to the Company that we will not rest until all LUL members get a proper pay award and genuine improvements to your terms and conditions.

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.

Tube bosses have failed to offer an acceptable pay increase

NEGOTIATING MEETINGS - FIVE MONTHS OF DISCUSSION - NO ACCEPTABLE OFFER!

Dear Colleague,

Rates of Pay and Conditions of Service 2019 - London Underground (including Ex Tubelines Staff)

Since the 9th January your negotiation team Lead Officer John Leach and myself have been attempting to negotiate a fair increase to your rate of pay that recognises the contribution you have made to keeping the Tube, and indeed London running.
