Ballot matrix prepared over degraded, substandard conditions at Morden depot

Subject: MORDEN DEPOT – GARTH HOUSE

That we note the resolution from our London Transport Regional Council regarding the degraded, sub-standard work conditions and welfare facilities at Morden Depot and the company’s unwillingness to address these most basic and necessary provisions.

We also note the matter is to be raised at a coming Trains Safety Council meeting, and instruct the General Secretary to place an updated report in front of this NEC following this meeting.

Dispute arises as Tube bosses leave duties uncovered

Subject: DUTIES/SHIFT COVERAGE, BAKERLOO LINE SOUTH GROUP – LONDON UNDERGROUND

That we note the report from the Lead Officer regarding talks with the company; and that we have had no satisfactory undertaking that duties will be sufficiently covered. It actually appears to be the case that if they could get away with skeleton staffing all stations they would!

This breaching of their own policy and procedure creates undue stress on our members and puts them and the travelling public at risk’ representing a breakdown in trust between the company, their staff and this union.

Meeting called over Met Line withdrawal of canteen facilities

Subject: CANTEEN CLOSURE, HARROW, METROPOLITAN LINE – LONDON UNDERGROUND

That we note the report from our Lead Officer and the correspondence from the company declining to address our concerns and requirements in any way whatsoever.
The position of the company now confirmed in writing regarding their removal of and intention to not provide replacement canteen facilities or arrangements for our driver members sets a precedent which is unacceptable, and a threat to all our driver members on the LU combine.

Ballot prepared over Metropolitan Line drivers' canteen closure

Subject: CANTEEN CLOSURE, HARROW, METROPOLITAN LINE – LONDON UNDERGROUND

We note the resolution from our Neasden Branch; and that the Machinery of Negotiation & Consultation has been exhausted.

This NEC is appalled by the company removing meal break facilities from our Driver Members, breaching longstanding agreements and consistently refusing to address the issue of an adequate staff canteen.

Jubilee dispute ends as RMT secures more weekend rest days for drivers

We note the report from the Lead Officer regarding the proposal from management.

We congratulate our Members, Negotiations Team, Lead Officer and both Jubilee Line Branches on fighting for and achieving this proposal from the company that addresses the issues of the dispute by returning the rest days management took away as a consequence of their imposed roster which will now be returned under our current agreements.

Further, we instruct the General Secretary to write to the company advising them of our acceptance of the proposal and that we are no longer in dispute.
