MATS Newsletter - Every Job Matters

Admin Update
After the ACAS talks we told management to end their workshops with Admin if they wanted the consultation to continue as this undermined the talks and was denying Admin proper consultation with the involvement of their unions, management agreed and the workshops ended.

Pay For Performance – Defend Your Pensionable Pay – Transport For London

AMENDED INDUSTRIAL ACTION

Further to my previous correspondence, I would again like to congratulate you for supporting your union’s call for strike action and action short of a strike in defence of your pension. Your Executive has carefully considered the strong wish of you and your colleagues to carry out industrial action in order to oppose these plans and those expressed by your representatives to fight TfL’s plans. I can now advise you that your General Grades Committee has decided to amend some of the industrial action.

Why Duty Managers And Admin Staff Should Vote YES for Industrial Action against Cuts

Attached is a leaflet for London Underground Duty Managers and Admin Staff urging them to vote YES in RMT's industrial action ballot, 'Every Job Matters'.

Please distribute. If you would like copies sent to you, please email our Regional Organiser John Leach.

TfL Ambassador Industrial Action Reminder

We note the circular from LUL management seeking volunteers to work as ‘TfL Ambassadors’, previously known as ICSAs. We continue to have serious concerns about how TfL and LUL attempt to deploy these staff, in ways which breach the settlement of our 2008 Casualisation dispute and undermine safe operating practices and the jobs of station staff.

We therefore instruct the General Secretary to remind London Underground members of our ongoing industrial action short of strikes on this matter, contained in our decision Gww 19 July 2012 and amended by our decision Gww 15 August 2012.

RMT Shocked At Increased Redundancy Plan For TfL

We note the report from our Regional Organiser and share his alarm at the increase in the number of projected redundancies and the spread of possible redundancies to clerical grades.

We note that our Regional Organiser has requested feedback from our branch and representatives and instruct the General Secretary to place this in front of us when received.

We also instruct the General Secretary to ensure that our TfL membership details are kept as up-to-date and accurate as possible.

London Transport Regional Council and branches to be advised.

TfL Announces Reorganisation Which RMT Believes Will Lead To Privatisation & Cuts

We note the correspondence from Transport for London dated 12 September 2013, and instruct the General Secretary to forward this to our TfL reps and our TfL no.1 branch and to post it on our website alongside this decision and our ‘What is Market Testing?’ briefing.

We reaffirm that RMT opposes market testing, a process which is used as a pretext either to privatise services or to make cuts to in-house services. In line with this, we note that TfL’s letter sets out that it is making plans to:

  • either reorganise or outsource Recruitment
  • reorganise Learning and Development

Latest RMT Decision On Transfer Of Operational Resourcing From TfL To London Underground

We note the report from the lead officer, confirming that there is no negative impact on our members who work in this department. We instruct the General Secretary to carry out the remaining part of our decision Gww 3 October 2013, obtaining a report on any possible impact on those members across TfL and LUL who are affected by the work of this department.

London Transport Regional Council and branches to be advised.

  • Previous decision on this matter is here.

RMT Opposes Job Losses From tfL Organisational Change

We note the report from our Regional Organiser. While we oppose all job losses, we note that these are unlikely to impact on our members. We instruct the General Secretary to monitor the progress of this reorganisation and place regular reports in front of us. Further, we instruct the General Secretary to ascertain from those trade unions which are recognised in these departments what action they may be taking on this matter, and to place their responses in front of us.

London Transport Regional Council, TfL no.1 branch and Transport for London representatives to be advised.
