London Underground Pay 2019: RMT responds to latest offer

Dear RMT members,

Today myself and our reps met LUL to discuss pay 2019. The company made the offer as attached.

We immediately responded by saying that the RMT would seek to meet all our reps to discuss the offer. Therefore we cannot formally respond in this update. However, I stated that all pay deals in LUL are RPI linked in the past. Also, any banked rest days can only be taken in line with our agreements.

We still have some way to go in these pay talks.

As soon as our NEC has considered the position there will be a further update.

Thanks,
