Service Control Offer Considered by Reps

Today all RMT Service Control reps from across Service Control in London Underground met to discuss the final offer that LU and RMT had been negotiating all this week at ACAS.

The reps felt that the final offer made after much negotiating and fighting was a solid victory for all members and for everyone that works in service control, they also felt we had all achieved something un-heard of in London Underground... A guaranteed "Lifetime Protection of Earnings" in writing from LU!!

RMT Service Control - ACAS Talks Update

RMT has put forward our opinion on this document that shows many loopholes for London Underground to not support Service Control staff in the future and allows management to hand pick who goes where.

LU management don't want there to be any transparency in who goes where in Service Control and don't want anything to be done by mutual agreement but for LU to choose and decide everything.

RMT And London Underground Met At ACAS Today To Discuss Service Control Dispute

RMT reps attended ACAS with London Underground Ltd today to discuss our service control dispute.

We confirmed the issues which have forced us to call industrial action, and received an initial, verbal response from management.

LUL will put its response in writing by Monday, and there will be further talks on Tuesday. So far, however, the company has not provided the answers that our service control members need to assure them of their future job security, fair treatment and adequate representation.

So our industrial action remains ON.
