After five days of “negotiation”, London Underground has rejected all the demands in RMT’s pay claim. LU has made an “offer”, which is for a one-year deal on pay only, proposing an RPI percentage increase (currently 2.5%), and which is contingent on the union dropping all demands in our claim, including the demand for a flat-rate pay increase and a 32-hour working week.

London Underground Pay Update - Offer Made

Your negotiating team met today (3rd April) with London Underground who made us a derisory pay offer of a one-year, RPI only deal, which works out as 2.5% based on the February 2019 figure. This offer was conditional on us removing all other aspects of our pay claim, for example a shorter working week, better work/life balance and improved travel facilities. 

LU Pay Talks Update

The third day of London Underground pay talks took place yesterday (Wednesday 13th March). RMT Regional Organiser, John Leach, attended with reps from the seven Functional Councils RMT has recognition on. The company had previously asked us to remove a number of items from our pay claim before they would make us a financial offer. We refused this request and returned yesterday to continue to engage in meaningful talks with the company. There were discussions about improving staff travel facilities and also around our demand for a 32 hour, 4 day working week.
