Transformation mass meeting


11th January 2018 Circular No: IR/23/18

Dear Colleagues,


Further to my previous Circular (IR/431/17, 28th September 2017), where I advised that TfL was undertaking a ‘root and branch’ review of the business with the intention of hitting a savings target of £5.8bn – made up from £5.2bn Business Savings and £0.6bn Operating Model Savings, discussions with the Company have continued.

TFL Transformation: Mass members meeting to be arranged

TfL Transformation

Following latest discussions with the company; we instruct the General Secretary to arrange a TfL mass members meeting this month; inviting all other unions on TfL to seek a way forward in line with our members wishes, union policy and with a view to inter-union cooperation.

Members to be advised by email and text.

All London Transport Branches and the London Transport Regional Council to be advised.

Transformation Counter Proposals

By now, I’m sure you have all had a chance to familiarise yourselves with the Business Case in your area that LU are proposing as part of Transformation. The RMT continue to oppose the proposed changes in the Business Cases and we have had agreement from the company that they are willing to consider counter proposals from affected areas.


Transformation Update - Job Descriptions

During our previous staff consultation drop ins the TU requested you all to be proactive and provide us with your current job descriptions and examples where you believe you go above and beyond your current role.

We are now in the process of receiving the proposed "draft" job descriptions from management to review, so it is imperative that you access these and feed back to us your comment and concerns. These JDs are available on Sharepoint.

LU Transformation Update

Dear all, we felt it only right that we should issue a report by the Reps currently taking part in the consultation talks with LU Management for the latest phase of transformation.

Asset Operations Transformation

Today (23/11/17), your reps met with London Underground to begin Transformation consultation. We were presented with a number of slideshows, which were a condensed version of the business case. These covered Power & Electrical, Signals, Track, Stations Buildings & Civil, Asset Systems & Reliability, Network Planning & Services and Asset Operations Admin.

Renewals & Enhancement Transformation

Yesterday (22/11/17), your reps met with London Underground to begin Transformation consultation. We were presented with a slideshow, which was a condensed version of the business case. Unfortunately, as with all other work streams, the number of people in scope, as well as the potential job losses, did not match on any of the documents the company have given us.

Skills Development Transformation

On Monday 20/11/17, your reps were due to meet with London Underground to begin Transformation consultation. Unfortunately, the company scheduled three meetings on Monday and Skills Development was due to be the third. Despite us raising our concerns that they were not allowing enough time for each meeting, these were ignored to suit the management team consulting on Skills Development.
