RMT Alarmed At Possibility Of Redundancies At Mitie

CHANGES TO TERMS AND CONDITIONS AND POSSIBLE REDUNDANCIES – MITIE (TFL CONTRACT) (LUL/14/2)

“We note the report from the Assistant General Secretary and are appalled that fraud was committed in the compilation of the business case and that this employer intends to go ahead with redundancies anyway.

We therefore instruct the General Secretary to:-

  • Seek press coverage of this situation
  • Seek urgent legal advice on our options for putting a stop to these redundancies going ahead
  • Ballot our relevant members for strikes and action short of strikes as quickly as practical to a timescale to be agreed with LU Engineering branch
  • Place this matter back in front of us in the event of any developments and in any case within 14 days.

London Transport Regional Council and branches to be advised.”
