Dear Colleagues,

Rates of Pay & Conditions of Service 2019 - London Underground

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.

RMT set out clear demand for a pay deal that reflects the growing workload and pressures on all tube staff

On eve of pay talks RMT demands fair deal for all Tube workers

On the eve of pay talks tomorrow tube union RMT has set out a clear demand for a deal that reflects the growing workload and pressures on all tube staff who are central to delivering a transport system that even the Tories and the business lobby accept is a major contributory factor to the wealth of the capital city.

RMT receives new pay offer from Tube bosses

- The latest pay offer from London Underground is attached to this article.

Dear RMT members,

A new revised pay offer has been sent out London Underground. This offer has not been discussed, but follows on from last week's pay talks.

The RMT executive committee will discuss the offer soon and give the RMT position on it.

There is still nothing from the company for members covered by Tubelines collective bargaining arrangements.

I've told LUL we are available on the 5th of June.

The offer has been put in the public domain by London Underground.

London Underground Pay talks update

Dear RMT members 

Today myself with RMT reps, and the other Trade Unions met LUL face to face for the 6th meeting we’ve had in this years Pay talks.

Despite our strong representation in the meeting the company made no revised/ improved  offer. Rather they once again pleaded poverty. We told them in no uncertain terms that our members would not be paying for either the government or the mayor's financial starvation or incompetence.

At the end of the day long meeting LUL said they were preparing a revised offer and that they would send it to us next Thursday 30th.
