Justice for Station and Revenue Staff

Dear colleague

JUSTICE FOR STATION AND REVENUE STAFF

RMT has launched a campaign to achieve Justice for Station and Revenue Staff at London Underground as the company tries to bulldoze through plans to undermine revenue grades by introducing a new grade on inferior terms and conditions and over its continuous failure to take proper steps to address the issue of workplace violence faced by all LU station grade members.

REMINDER - Staff our Stations - Reps Campaigning Meeting - Thursday 16th January 

Dear colleague,

As part of the Staff Our Stations campaign, the NEC has instructed me to arrange a high profile meeting of station staff reps including Tier 2 and Health and Safety reps and branches that represent station staff.

Violence and assaults against rail workers and members is soaring. Despite this, station staffing is under increasing attack from the private train companies which are attempting to close ticket offices and cut hours and staffing at stations.
