BREAKDOWN IN INDUSTRIAL RELATIONS, TRAIN OPERATORS, VICTORIA LINE - LONDON UNDERGROUND (LUL/14/2)

Further to my circular IR/465/19 15th November 2019, your NEC considered a recent report from the lead officer as well as correspondence from LUL received following discussions held under the auspices of ACAS. Having considered the current position the NEC decided that we should discuss the issues most recently raised by our negotiating team through the machinery and that we should also consolidate our already gained commitments from LUL.

Bakerloo line drivers to be balloted over serious concerns about timetable

WORKING TIMETABLE 44/45 (WT44/45) TRAIN OPERATORS, BAKERLOO LINE - LONDON UNDERGROUND (LUL/14/2)

Our Industrial and Health and Safety representatives on the Bakerloo line have been raising serious concerns over the implementation of Working Timetable WT44/45 which has been in place since May 2019. We firmly believe this timetable is failing and is causing undue stress on Train Operator members.

Urgent meeting called as Victoria Line dispute continues

BREAKDOWN IN INDUSTRIAL RELATIONS, TRAIN OPERATORS, VICTORIA LINE - LONDON UNDERGROUND (LUL/14/2)

I advised you previously that the NEC had instructed me to obtain a report from the Regional Organiser with regards to the local meetings that were taking place that would hopefully resolve this dispute over the need to improve working relationships between RMT members and Victoria Line management (Ref: IR/399/19, 2nd October 2019).

RMT to begin balloting ABM cleaners

Dear Colleagues,

JUSTICE FOR ABM CLEANERS (LUL/14/2)

A dispute situation was declared by the National Executive Committee over the company's failure to provide free staff travel, a company-wide sick pay scheme and a decent company pension (Ref: IR/240/19, 13th June 2019).

No progress on these matters has been achieved, despite the best efforts of our representatives and negotiators. Therefore, notice of a ballot of all RMT members at the company was served on ABM this week and the ballot opens on Monday 28th October 2019 and closes on Tuesday 19th November 2019.
