Central Line RMT reps secures drivers above 'minimum numbers agreement'


That we note the meeting with Drivers Local and Functional Representatives took place, and that it was reported that:

  • An extra 20 surplus requirements positions have been allocated to ease staffing issues.
  • A guarantee of a minimum 15 extra surplus requirements positions to the 2009 agreement will be maintained by the company.

It was reported that progress made at talks is taking a while to filter down due to resistance from local management.

We instruct the General Secretary to place an updated report in front of this NEC by the first week in October 2019

All affected members to be advised by email & text.

All LU operational branches and the London Transport Regional Council to be advised.

What is a National Executive Committee decision?

This article is an 'executive decision' which has been written by the RMT National Executive Committee. The National Executive is the union's governing body in between AGMs. Its decisions set out what the union will do on a particular issue.

These decisions can often be brief, and may be one of several passed over a period of time. To get a better understanding or find out more information about what the RMT is doing, speak to your rep or attend your branch or Regional Council meeting.
