London Underground Pay talks update

Dear RMT members 

Today myself with RMT reps, and the other Trade Unions met LUL face to face for the 6th meeting we’ve had in this years Pay talks.

Despite our strong representation in the meeting the company made no revised/ improved  offer. Rather they once again pleaded poverty. We told them in no uncertain terms that our members would not be paying for either the government or the mayor's financial starvation or incompetence.

At the end of the day long meeting LUL said they were preparing a revised offer and that they would send it to us next Thursday 30th.

Meeting called over unsatisfactory situation on Victoria line

Subject: BREAKDOWN IN INDUSTRIAL RELATIONS, TRAIN OPERATORS, VICTORIA LINE – LONDON UNDERGROUND

That we note the report from our Lead Officer regarding the unsatisfactory situation for our Victoria Line Train Operators; and we instruct the General Secretary to arrange an urgent meeting of our Victoria Line Representatives, Trains Functional Council with the Lead Officer, Senior Assistant General Secretary and NEC in attendance.

Members to be advised by email & text.
