Pay - Full & final offer from LUL is not enough plus Anti-union laws and Mayoral election

Pay & Conditions

We have told LUL that their full and final offer is not enough.

We cannot accept an offer that fails to deal with the unacceptable rosters that many members are having to work. We've given management the evidence - our shift working cuts the life expectancy of our members by 4/5 years. Management say we'll only address that if you pay for it. Imagine if they asked us to take a pay cut to cover the costs of PPE or asbestos removal! We can't accept their position.

Support our ABM Cleaners

Hope to see members from all functions on the cleaners demo at Parliament tomorrow.

The demonstration will take place on Wednesday 29 January at 13:00 opposite Old Palace Yard at the Houses of Parliament.

I recently attended a meeting with RMT's parliamentary group where the MPs agreed to write to the London Mayor in support of our demands that the Mayor immediately grants staff travel facilities to all cleaners.

Conference Delegates Required

At our next Branch Meeting on Friday 13th December, we will be seeking delegates to represent us at the TUC Congress 2020, The RMT Disabled Members Conference, The RMT Black and Ethnic Minority Members Conference, The RMT LGBT+ Conference, and the TUC LGBT+ Conference.

If you are interested in attending any of these events then please attend the next Branch Meeting to nominate yourself, or if you cannot attend, ask your local Rep to nominate for you.

Change of venue for Neasden Branch meeting in August

Please note, that due to refurbishment, The Torch will not be available for the Neasden Branch meeting in August. An alternative venue has been sourced by the Branch Secretary. It will be held at The Cock Tavern in King’s Cross (see attached flyer for full details). Apolgies for any inconvenience. 

 

 

 

Tube bosses plan to close all Revenue Control line offices

RMT revenue reps are to discuss all options including possible industrial action over LULs appalling decision to close all Line Revenue Offices.

The proposal is that all RCIs will be based at Baker Street in the current revenue control office. This includes all locker, shower and PC access only being available at Baker Street, an office that barely suits 40 odd people there now.

With nearly 140 RCIs being planned to move there , it’s a case of treating RCIs like sardines. It also means journey times of up to an hour to access mess facility’s and lockers.
