Piccadilly Workshop Offer accepted


We note the offer from the company, the report from the Lead Officer and the views of the reps that this offer is acceptable.

We congratulate our Piccadilly Line AP Fleet members and reps on waging a most spirited and effective dispute; which has been completely successful at every stage in resisting the implementation of a two tier work force via the introduction of 35 new members of staff on two year fixed term contracts. Every aspect of our joint strategy has been achieved including no use of agency staff, any redeployment being temporary and solely within the Tube Lines/LUL family, no onerous rosters and ultimately the 35 new starters now on full employed contracts.

We instruct the General Secretary to advise the company that their offer in writing of 27th July 2017 is acceptable to this union, no further industrial action will currently be called, and the dispute will be resolved once commitments outlined in the offer letter have been completed.

Further, in light of the magnificent victorious actions of our members and reps we instruct the General Secretary to commission a feature prominently in the next possible edition of RMT News.

Members to be advised by postal letter, email and text.

LU Fleet Branch and the London Transport Regional Council to be advised.
