RMT accuses Tube bosses of playing fast and loose in pay talks as union steps up preparations for a ballot

Tube union RMT today accused London Underground bosses of stringing staff along and playing fast and loose after an eighth day of pay talks yesterday failed to lever any king of meaningful offer out of the management side.

The union says it is both angry and frustrated at what it sees as blatant delaying tactics and is now stepping up preparations for a strike ballot across the tube network.

RMT General Secretary Mick Cash said;

RMT fighting for 'proper pay award and genuine improvements to your terms and conditions'

Dear Colleagues,

RATES OF PAY & CONDITIONS OF SERVICE 2019 - LONDON UNDERGROUND 

As you are aware, RMT is currently in dispute with LUL over the lack of a forthcoming suitable pay offer from the Company and LUL is aware that we are currently preparing to ballot you all for industrial action, up to and including strike action across the network, over this matter. We have made it abundantly clear to the Company that we will not rest until all LUL members get a proper pay award and genuine improvements to your terms and conditions.

RMT moves towards dispute as pay talks collapse

TUBE UNION RMT said today that it is moving into a ballot for strike action involving London Underground staff after crucial talks collapsed today with management refusing to offer any significant improvement to the pay and conditions of the workforce across the network.

Ballot preparations for 10,000 staff across all grades are now well advanced with the union saying it is angry and frustrated that a golden opportunity to come up with a positive offer has been blown by tube bosses today.

RMT General Secretary Mick Cash said:

Tube bosses have failed to offer an acceptable pay increase

NEGOTIATING MEETINGS - FIVE MONTHS OF DISCUSSION - NO ACCEPTABLE OFFER!

Dear RMT members,

A new revised pay offer has been sent out London Underground. This offer has not been discussed, but follows on from last week's pay talks.

The RMT executive committee will discuss the offer soon and give the RMT position on it.

There is still nothing from the company for members covered by Tubelines collective bargaining arrangements.

I've told LUL we are available on the 5th of June.

The offer has been put in the public domain by London Underground.

London Underground Pay talks update

Dear RMT members 

Today myself with RMT reps, and the other Trade Unions met LUL face to face for the 6th meeting we’ve had in this years Pay talks.

Despite our strong representation in the meeting the company made no revised/ improved  offer. Rather they once again pleaded poverty. We told them in no uncertain terms that our members would not be paying for either the government or the mayor's financial starvation or incompetence.

At the end of the day long meeting LUL said they were preparing a revised offer and that they would send it to us next Thursday 30th.
