RMT's fight for year-on-year increases in your pay.

Olympic Recognition And Reward – Transport For London (london Underground)

I am writing to advise members that following further talks at ACAS, a final proposal was tabled over Olympic Recognition and Reward for London Underground members. A meeting took place with 150 of your representatives at the end of last week to consult on this offer and the General Grades Committee has decided the following: -

RMT settles Olympics recognition and reward agreement with London Underground

After months of intensive negotiations RMT has reached an agreement that protects existing agreements and allows staff to work within the terms of their existing contracts.

There will also be additional rewards packages of up to £1000 for staff in recognition of the massive additional pressures that will be thrown at the service from the extra three million journeys a day.

Your negotiating team met with LUL under the auspices of ACAS yesterday. The company has not changed its financial offer, and has proposed that in the event of duties remaining uncovered by volunteers at any location, the level 1 committee will meet to resolve it. There is no proposal to change Framework Agreements.

OLYMPIC RECOGNITION AND REWARD – TRANSPORT FOR LONDON (LUL)

As you will be aware, London Underground has tabled a further offer with regard to Olympic Recognition and Reward following recent discussions. The offer is due to be discussed this Friday 16th March at a mass meeting of reps to be held at Friends Meeting House in Euston at 11am. I have been informed that release from duty has been arranged for our LU reps.

Below is a summary of the new deal.

OLYMPIC RECOGNITION AND REWARD – TRANSPORT FOR LONDON & LUL

“We note that a well-attended meeting of our London Underground representatives unanimously recommended rejection of London Underground’s Olympics offer, taking the firm view that any offer should be for all grades and that there should not be any changes to the rules governing working conditions set out in the Framework Agreements. We therefore reject London Underground’s offer.

Olympics Reward and Recognition

[report from Stations Functional Council]

The Trade Unions met with the company for the first time since March to discuss what reward and recognition employees would get in acknowledgement of our work over the Olympic period next year.

Laughably, LU have proposed an enhanced CSS bonus with an offer of £200 over the existing bonus scheme (taxable) if we attain the mark which LU set.

Non-payment of our pay rise

Today is London Underground pay day, and staff have been shocked to discover that their pay does include the 4.2% rise that should have applied from 1 April. After a long-running dispute last year, the pay deal was agreed in December, so London Underground has had plenty of time to arrange for the year 2 rise to be paid on time.

Pay Deal - A Rant

After a long drawn out fight and lots of "vote yes" "this paydeal is unacceptable" comments the EC have decided that the paydeal is acceptable and that were going to concentrate on the job cuts. Yes we must fight the job cuts but now we have put ourselves in the position of looking as bad as Scablef who done exactly the same.

Update on Pay "Talks"

Regional Organiser Steve Hedley writes ...

After a mammoth ten hour session at ACAS on Tuesday night, management left the building without as much as putting an offer on the table concerning pay or even medical redeployment. So non train drivers are to be discriminated against if LUL get their way; even Aslef members who are not drivers will suffer.

Of course we want everyone including drivers to have better medical redeployment, but LUL walked away promising only to hold a further meeting next Tuesday.

The general secretary has confirmed that we will now be balloting on the issue of our pay claim - the only pay claim to ask for medical redeployment for all staff. The TSSA having been betrayed by LUL are now back in dispute as well and Unite are already balloting.
