Asset Operations Transformation
TfL logo and building


Today (23/11/17), your reps met with London Underground to begin Transformation consultation. We were presented with a number of slideshows, which were a condensed version of the business case. These covered Power & Electrical, Signals, Track, Stations Buildings & Civil, Asset Systems & Reliability, Network Planning & Services and Asset Operations Admin.

We were told by the company that no Fleet members are being included in this Transformation, but we believe there may be and if you are a Fleet member in scope, we ask you to please get in touch with a MATS rep as a matter of urgency.

It is also unclear to us who will be taking responsibility of which assets, as we received contradicting information from another work stream.

We asked if the increase in Band 4 roles will be ring fenced for promotion and were told that they would be.

We welcome the fact that admin will remain in their local locations and questioned why this wasn’t being replicated elsewhere.

As with in every other work stream, we asked for actual numbers of people in scope and role changes, as each document we have been given shows different numbers. We also stressed that these should show how many vacancies there are, as well as people on secondment and non-permanent labour, so we know the actual number of roles changing.

Due to the number of presentations given to us in such a short amount of time, we were unable to ask any more questions and again repeated to management that we need sufficient time allocated for each meeting.



We will be hosting drop in sessions with our members soon and details will be forwarded to you once this has been arranged. In the meantime, if you have any questions or feedback, do not hesitate to get in touch.
