TfL Market Testing Explained

RMT National Policy Department briefing – What is market testing?

In the early 1990s, the Conservative government introduced a policy of market testing public services in central government, testing their efficiency by exposing them to competition from external providers. It was less relevant whether the service was actually contracted to the private sector, but rather that it was subjected to competitive challenge.

However, it is typically used to open the door to privatisation.

TfL Reps Discuss New Christmas Arrangements Policy

We note the correspondence from Transport for London. However, having spoken to our representatives, we understand that although the policy may be the same as in previous years, the practice has abruptly changed.

We instruct the General Secretary to obtain the views of our TfL no.1 branch on this matter and place these in front of us.

RMT Rejects TFL Pay Offer For 2012:

We note the views of our TfL no.1 branch on the pay offer from Transport for London.

We affirm the branch’s view that RMT should not accept TfL's pay offer. We do not support Performance-Related Pay, and we will not endorse part of our members' pay rise in the second year of this deal being conditional on us accepting a PRP policy that we have not even seen yet.

RMT is disappointed that other unions have accepted the offer and not taken up our request to pursue our concerns.
