RMT on Night Tube restart announcement

RMT responds to plans for limited Night Tube reopening

General Secretary Mick Lynch said:

“No one has worked harder to ensure a safe environment for women on London Underground than the RMT. While Tube bosses have axed staff and left stations routinely unstaffed, with all of the obvious risks, we have campaigned relentlessly for the front line, physical ‎presence of visible staff on stations and platforms.

RMT reiterated the terms of the dispute which are 1. NT should be voluntary 2. There should be no increase in weekend working. 3. Shift patterns should not destroy our members' work life balance. 4. Over 200 Part Time positions should not be abolished.

RMT TFC Statement on funding crisis 'engagement' sessions

 

RMT Trains' Functional Council response to London Underground's funding crisis 'engagement' sessions.

We have listened carefully to your presentations over the past month.

You have said that, prior to COVID-19, LUL was on schedule to provide an economically viable service to not only run Tube services but to subsidise other passenger services. This all changed as a direct result of the first lockdown in March 2020.

RMT bulletin: we can and must win this battle

The government, TfL and London Underground consider EVERYTHING that makes our job bearable and worthwhile as up for grabs. Pensions, job security, pay rises and your framework agreements are all threatened... If we don’t stop them! 

Last year we were heroes, now we’re just a cost 
on an accountant’s balance sheet. Management are going to try and con us into believing that if we cooperate with attacks on jobs, pay, pensions and conditions they will be in a better position to negotiate with the government for funding.

RMT warns of action over driverless Tube plan

RMT warns of action as Government places contract for driverless trains on London Underground

TUBE UNION RMT warned today of a campaign of action as it emerged that the Government has placed adverts for a consultancy contract to explore the introduction of driverless trains on London Underground.

General Secretary Mick Lynch said;

"The news that the Government is pressing ahead with wasting money on a consultancy project on driverless trains on London Underground when there are massive challenges facing the transport network shows their twisted set of priorities.
