Stations Health and Safety News, March 2020

In response to the companies statement from TfL’s Head of Occupational Health that stated “where people need to work closely to each other (within two meters) they can continue” we implore you to not take unnecessary risks.

Trains Functional Council Update March 2020

On March 26th the RMT joined with Aslef and LUL management in an ad-hoc TFC meeting, the vast majority of which was spent discussing the effects of Corona Virus (CV) on drivers. The RMT recognises that we are living in extraordinary times and that to achieve the safest outcomes for our members we have to engage in constructive discussions. However, we refuse to make hasty decisions which may create short-term benefits but result in serious problems in the future. LUL put a number of proposals to us, some of which we agreed to consider and we will return to further talks on Tuesday 31st.

That flies in the face of everything they have said about staying at home.

RATES OF PAY & CONDITIONS OF SERVICE 2019 – LONDON UNDERGROUND

You will know that your union had rejected two “full and final” offers on pay from London Underground, to cover the years commencing on 1st April on 2019-2022.

measures that were being put in place to reduce risk to all parties.
