Meeting called to debate train prep schedule changes

TRAIN PREPARATION SCHEDULE - LONDON UNDERGROUND (LUL/14/10)

The following resolution has been received from our East Ham Branch:-

“This branch notes the very dangerous intention by LU to change the train preparation schedule from every 24 hours to every 96 hours. London Underground are saying that this is as safe as 24 hours. No safety related submission has been provided to back this up. The company will effectively be running a train service with a large percentage of its train service unchecked for four days at a time.

RMT to launch campaign to 'completely oppose' station admin staff job cuts

REDUNDANCIES, STATION ADMIN STAFF - LONDON UNDERGROUND (LUL/16/3)

The following resolution has been received from our East Ham Branch:-

“This branch is appalled by London Underground's proposals to significantly cut numbers of Stations Admin staff.

These cuts will cause unacceptable stress to our members, with increased workloads, significant changes to their roles and unsafe workloads. Additionally, this will create extra work for our station staff members, who will have to take on some of the responsibilities that currently fall to our admin members.

INTRODUCTION OF WTT15 - TRAIN OPERATORS - JUBILEE LINE, LONDON UNDERGROUND (LUL/14/2)

The following resolution has been received from our Neasden Branch:-

“This branch notes that London Underground is proposing to introduce Working Timetable 15 from 20th May 2018.

Following a recent schedules meeting and scrutiny by our representatives it became clear that the introduction of WTT15 would increase the volume of weekend working which is in breach of the pay dispute resolution agreement dated 21st May 2016.
