Opposing cuts in staffing levels and jobs

ABM plan to cut one in three tube cleaners - 1000 jobs

RMT warns of loss of 1000 cleaning jobs on London Underground and confirms lobby of Parliament

TUBE UNION RMT today warned of a thousand cleaning job losses on London Underground and announced that it will be lobbying Parliament on the 29th of January in support of decent jobs, on decent pay and conditions provided in house and with the cuts axe lifted from above the heads of the cleaning workforce.

In 2017 London Underground again outsourced Tube cleaning; this time on a five year contract to Global Corporation ABM.

Victory for staffing is to the credit of RMT members, Reps and the Branch

DUTIES/SHIFT COVERAGE, BAKERLOO SOUTH GROUP - LONDON UNDERGROUND (LUL/14/5)

London Underground cleaners have been invited to come to the Houses of Parliament on Tuesday 29th January to meet with some MPs. The MPs want to hear from cleaners about their issues. The best people to talk to the MPs are the cleaners themselves.

RMT in dispute with LU over uncovered duties

That we note the report from the Lead Officer regarding talks with the company; and that we have had no satisfactory undertaking that duties will be sufficiently covered. It actually appears to be the case that if they could get away with skeleton staffing all stations they would!

This breaching of their own policy and procedure creates undue stress on our members and puts them and the travelling public at risk’ representing a breakdown in trust between the company, their staff and this union.

We therefore instruct the General Secretary to:

Threats from ABM Regarding Alleged “Defamation”!

That we note a letter has been received from the Company, that while not directly refuting our position that ABM are seeking to reduce the workforce by almost a third, makes the direct threat “to take further action” against the union if we address this issue in a publication ever again!

Anthony Codd has worked for LUL for over 35 years. He was a n Operational grade Q1A Duty Manager working in the Track Access Control Centre (TACC) before being, what we believe, unfairly summarily dismissed at a CDI in August 2018. 

An incident occurred back in January 2018, where a Track Access Controller (TAC) made an error that could have potentially endangered staff working on the track. This was, at the time, bought to the attention of Mr Codd who was the TACC Duty Manager on duty that night.
