Jubilee Line ballot begins on Thursday 3rd of May


The following resolution has been received from our Neasden Branch:-

“This branch notes that London Underground is proposing to introduce Working Timetable 15 from 20th May 2018.

Following a recent schedules meeting and scrutiny by our representatives it became clear that the introduction of WTT15 would increase the volume of weekend working which is in breach of the pay dispute resolution agreement dated 21st May 2016.

No improvements have since been made and we request the NEC to enter into dispute with London Underground on this matter and to ballot all Train Operator and Instruction Operator members (with the exception of Night Tube Train Operators) on the Jubilee Line for strike action and action short of strike action.

Work life balance is important to all of us and it's crucial that we hold London Underground management to the commitments they have previously made to us on these issues.

I urge you all to pass this motion and send a strong message to London Underground that enough is enough”.

The National Executive Committee considered this matter and took the decision to inform London Underground that a dispute situation exists between us over this issue and to ballot all Jubilee Line Train Operator and Instructor Operator members for industrial action. Ballot papers will be posted to members on Thursday 3rd May and the closing date for this ballot is Thursday 17th May 2018.

If any member does not receive their ballot paper, please ask them to call the Freephone helpline on 0800 376 3706, RMT Head Office on 0207 387 4771 to speak to the Industrial Relations Department or e-mail info@rmt.org.uk to request a replacement. I will keep Branches advised of all further developments.
