RMT win: no more 'double' meal breaks on trains

Spare Turns Meal Break Victory for RMT

The dispute on the Central line is paying dividends for drivers across the combine. Following a massive Yes vote for strike action the RMT has been in talks about a number of issues, one of which is the unsafe and unfair practice of forcing spare drivers to have 2 meal breaks. This would usually involve taking a break as soon as a driver signs on followed by 5.15 of work and then
another break followed by more work.

Night Tube station staff - meet your reps

The RMT invites Night Tube station workers to meet your reps at 2130 on the 23rd of August in the training room at Kings Cross St Pancreas station.

Have a look at the attached flyer for all the details.

RMT is demanding better pay and conditions for all London Underground workers. Come and discuss how this affects you, the latest developments in talks, and what action we can take to press our case.
