London Underground Pay dispute update

RATES OF PAY AND CONDITIONS OF SERVICE 2019 - LONDON UNDERGROUND (LUL/0001)

Consultation with our representatives has taken place since London Underground tabled its “full and final offer”, which I advised you of in a previous circular (Ref: IR/465/19, 15th November 2019).

To remind you, the offer tabled at that time was as follows:

· Year 1 - 2.7% (RPI Feb 2019 +0.2%)

· Year 2 - 1.4% plus 30 minute reduction in working week (three banked rest days - target implementation date: mid 2020)

· Year 3 - RPI Feb 2021 +0.2%

Oyster Card deposit change and workplace violence

- Please download the attached poster and display it in your station.

In a recent incident at Dagenham Heathway, a customer smashed the SCP window with a bike lock. This is one of many reports we have received of physical and verbal
assaults on staff directly relating to the oyster card
deposit being withdrawn.

What this means in simple terms is, people who have purchased an oyster card on or after the 23rd February can no longer get their fiver back as it is now a non-
refundable charge.
