PAY CLAIM
I couldn't find this anywhere else so decided to post it here for all to see.

The Questionable Practices of SIS

SIS have been doing the rounds at stations, asking questions, giving out questionable information, and reporting on staff attitudes to Management - everyword seemingly unquestioned.

Read the attachment for a fuller account and suggestions for dealing with spies.

Signal September/October 2011

In this edition read about:

The Pay Offer (what it is and what is happening).

Barbican returns to SS3 but what about the rostered Supers there? The rep believes they should be able to remain there on their SS2 salary. LUL disagree's.

Opening Staff Lockers - Train side seem to have a procedure for this station side does not.

The Hammersmith & City Branch AGM.

Mind the Reality Gap when it comes to cleaning uniform.

Gerry Duffy's recent letter to Bob Crow about uniform cleaning token shows that there is a great divide between what management think they know and what it actually the case.

"Hard times still to come but it will only be made easier if we stand together" - New Year Message from Malcolm Taylor

2010 was a tough year for our members with increases in workloads due to the amount of vacancies not being filled by the company, and facing the prospect of mass job cuts, displacements and a huge ramp up from management in sending people to company disciplinary interviews (where a vast majority of these ending in sackings), so it is with pride that I see our membership is still solid and remains the majority voice within LU.

Dear Colleagues you may remember the details of our collective grievance from back in August 2010 if not you can find them by following this link: http://www.rmtplatform.org.uk/node/857.
The GSM has now provided a response which I have repudiated today. Please take a look. It’s six pages long, but it will give you a clear idea of what I’ve been up to in level 1 meetings.

Dear Colleagues,

Sudden Impact

The abuse of personal contact details

It seems to be a never ending complaint that LUL managers harass and invade the privacy of our members and cause alarm and distress to them and their next of kin by making unsolicited calls whilst our members are off sick – even to the point of abusing the emergency contact details that are provided.
