Night Tube staff - Don't face management alone: use your union rep!

Called to a Local Disciplinary Interview? Or a case conference? Got a meeting with management to discuss your Flexible Working application? Or your grievance? Make sure that an RMT representative comes with you!

Sometimes, Night Tube staff think that the union can not provide them with a representative because of Night Tube working hours. But the union can and will.

Night Tube crisis looms on Piccadilly Line

TUBE UNION RMT warned today that the Night Tube on the Piccadilly line is in crisis with a serious lack of trained train operators available to run the service.

RMT has been informed that the amount of drivers available to run the Mayor’s flagship Night Tube service on the Piccadilly Line is now so low that last weekend saw only 7 trains running instead of the normal 22 – a near reduction of 70%. The union understands that the situation could continue until Christmas.

Drivers' union RMT wins again for Night Tube train ops

RMT announces victory for justice over Night Tube drivers’ career progression.

TUBE UNION RMT has called off strike action and heralded a victory for justice for Night Tube drivers as LUL agreed to end the practice of preventing them from moving into vacant full-time positions for a period of at least 18 months. All other staff, including part-time Night Tube Station Staff had been eligible to apply, but Night Tube Train Operators were not.

96% yes vote for RMT Night tube drivers' industrial action

TUBE UNION RMT confirmed today that Night Tube drivers have voted overwhelmingly for both strike action and action short of a strike over a block on career progression which has been imposed by London Underground.

Members voted by over 96% for strike action and by over 98% for action short of a strike.

The results of the ballot will now be considered by RMT’s executive committee who will decide the next course of action.

Update on today's Night Tube dispute meeting

Constructive and good natured talks took place this morning at Baker Street between LUL and the Movement's committee over Night Tube Driver's going Full Time.

We provided a number of constructive suggestions to the Director and his colleagues to slove the dispute including nominations being called by date of nomination order and additionally we looked at ways Night Tube Driver's could be called before 18 month's.

Night Tube drivers - check your depot nominations

At the last Movements Committee meeting on Thursday 2nd March, Operations Resourcing said that they believed around 175 of the 206 Night Tube Drivers had now nominated Full-Time Depot positions. 

It's important that every Night Tube Train Operator checks with their AG1 or Local Management team to ensure that if they have nominated a Depot their name is on the correct waiting list.
