RMT appalled by way LUL has acted over Night Tube “grade consolidation” plan

Dear Colleagues

RMT is appalled by the way London Underground has acted over Night Tube “grade consolidation”. Instead of accommodating those NT drivers who want to go full time, they attempt to do away with the grade completely and impose Night Tube shifts on the TO21 drivers.

London Underground management have told us that they are desperate for drivers. Night Tube drivers are fully trained up and many of them are eager to begin a full-time role. The solution therefore is simple: those Night Tube drivers who want to be full time should be promote as a matter of urgency.

Shortly after the Covid crisis started the RMT recognised that some changes to working practices would be inevitable.

The national union made it clear to the Government, London Underground and the train operating companies that although we would work with them, any variation to agreements would need to be time-limited to the period of the pandemic.

The recent TfL financial review has made it clear to all London Underground members that we are all going to have to fight hard for our jobs, terms and conditions, pensions and benefits. The government, the Mayor’s office and London Underground management are determined that the financial burden of the COVID 19 crisis will fall on London’s workers in general and on London Underground staff in particular.

RMT Update on proposed Night Tube changes

  • RMT is the majority Night Tube drivers' union. Please display this important update in your Night Tube depot.

June 3rd 2020

Some things are so important that drivers just want their reps to put inter-Union rivalry to one side and to work together to obtain the best outcome; and in uncertain times like these it is necessary to do just that. As we said in our first briefing, we want to work with Aslef in achieving job security for NT drivers. It is their choice to issue leaflets denigrating the RMT and our members, our concern is to get the best for you.
