Bring CBS Outdoor Back 'In House'

We note the correspondence from London Underground Ltd regarding CBS’s sale of its international outdoor advertising business. We continue to pursue our view that all London Underground work should be brought in-house, and instruct the General Secretary to table this for discussion at the next London Underground Briefing Forum. We further instruct the General Secretary to place this matter back in front of us when the name of the new owner of the CBS Outdoor contract is announced.

RMT Alarmed At Possibility Of Redundancies At Mitie


“We note the report from the Assistant General Secretary and are appalled that fraud was committed in the compilation of the business case and that this employer intends to go ahead with redundancies anyway.

We therefore instruct the General Secretary to:-

  • Seek press coverage of this situation
  • Seek urgent legal advice on our options for putting a stop to these redundancies going ahead

RMT Seeks Legal Advice As MJ Quinn Refuses To Recognise Workers Union

We note the report from our Regional Organiser, and that MJ Quinn is refusing to recognise RMT for those employees transferred from Emcor, despite this union’s recognition for these members when they worked for Emcor.

In accordance with our Regional Organiser’s request, we instruct the General Secretary to obtain and place in front of us legal advice on the collective bargaining and recognition arrangements being transferred from Emcor to MJ Quinn under the TUPE regulations.
