RMT aims to end outsourcing of core Materials work

Subject: VENDOR MANAGED INVENTORY SYSTEM, FLEET MATERIALS – LUL

We note the concerns of our LU Fleet Branch regarding the apparent outsourcing by stealth of our Fleet Material Stores member's work, and the threat posed to our members ongoing employment.

We instruct the General Secretary to seek an urgent meeting with the company to raise our concerns and objections with the view of an immediate end to all VMI and associated outsourcing of core Materials work to external contractors

Similarly, a review of other such inconsistencies in other grades should be reviewed.

Members to be advised by email and text.

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