Station Admin Update

 

Your reps have now seen the outcome of the preferencing exercise for Station Admin staff. We again stressed to the company that the RMT does not and cannot agree to our members having to reapply for their own jobs. We believe that you all do a fantastic job and are fully capable to continue doing so, without the need to be put under stress or humiliation by having to sit an exam in a classroom to carry on in the role you are currently carrying out successfully.

 

Transformation Update

Your London Underground Transformation Reps wanted to provide you with an update on how consultation is progressing.

 

Throughout consultation, we have opposed any job losses ad will continue to do so. We have scrutinised pooling documents and questioned the company’s rationale on many of the pools. We have successfully changed a number of pools and had people moved into the correct pools when the company have misplaced them. Unfortunately we haven’t been able to successfully achieve this in all cases and are pursuing those on an individual basis.

Senior Manager Admin Transformation Update

Your MATS reps met with London Underground last week for the latest consultation meeting. There has been some progress in this work stream. The company have put in extra ADCO jobs, meaning that all ADCOs will now be mapped and there will be vacancies at that grade.

The company are also going to open Voluntary Severance for Support Managers.

Asset Operations Transformation Update

Your MATS reps met with London Underground last week for the latest consultation meeting. Again the company deviated from the agenda proposed by your reps and we made little progress. It was a three hour meeting, with the first two hours spent talking about the proposed TUPE of 3 Bombardier staff into London Underground. LU are bringing these people into the company and including one of them ‘in scope’ for Transformation. We do not agree with this and believe that existing staff should not be put at risk by somebody new coming into the company.
