Opposing cuts in staffing levels and jobs

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!

Sacked for Doing His Job - Warning to anyone who does LDIs

Please print the attached notice and share with all members

 

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. 

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

RMT to launch campaign to 'completely oppose' station admin staff job cuts

REDUNDANCIES, STATION ADMIN STAFF - LONDON UNDERGROUND (LUL/16/3)

The following resolution has been received from our East Ham Branch:-

“This branch is appalled by London Underground's proposals to significantly cut numbers of Stations Admin staff.

These cuts will cause unacceptable stress to our members, with increased workloads, significant changes to their roles and unsafe workloads. Additionally, this will create extra work for our station staff members, who will have to take on some of the responsibilities that currently fall to our admin members.
