Replying to LUL Management about Attendance

Here are my thoughts on the responses given by management to issues the union raised about attendance. In summary, I'd say that although management's responses may help us put a stop to some of the worst abuses by local managers, they staunchly defend the company's intention to treat sick staff very harshly (to say the least). We need to step up our battle to prevent our members being treated like this, and to demand rights for sick staff.

Length of warning ‘up to’ 26/52 weeks

Update: LUL and TfL Pay

LUL Management seems to have got themselves in a twist over the 2009 pay.

RMT have demanded a substantial one year pay rise and other benefits, including a ‘floor’ salary of £26,000. Heating and food bills have gone right up over the last year and Underground passenger numbers are higher than ever.
