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.

Collective Grievance from Edgware Group against proposed rosters

We wish to submit a collective grievance against the proposed rosters as this appears to be our only avenue to raise objections against changes to our stations operation, staffing numbers, provision of customer service and service levels. Therefore, the proposed rosters submitted to our TU Representatives on the 05/08/10 are unacceptable for the reasons detailed below.

RMT demands investigation as Euston escalator fire exposes lethal consequences of axing tube station staff

TUBE UNION RMT today demanded a full external investigation into an escalator fire at Euston station four weeks ago where smoke detection systems failed and the station was only safely evacuated through the experience and vigilance of station-based staff. RMT have this morning referred the matter to the safety regulator the Office of Rail Regulation (ORR).

Station Groups Re-organisation: Details for the Northern Line

London Underground's proposed new groups for the Northern line are as follows:

Edgware - Edgware, Burnt Oak, Colindale, Hendon Central, Brent Cross, Golders Green, Hampstead, Belsize Park, Chalk Farm - 9 stations, c.125 staff

  • This is the current Edgware group, with Chalk Farm added. Currently, Edgware group has 123 staff; Chalk Farm has 14 staff, and its stare of its current group's reserve is around 5. Total = 142. So, management's proposals represent the loss of around 17 jobs on these stations.

Driving Customers away from Euston Ticket Office

On 31st August, the minimum £5 Oyster top up trial came to Euston.

Local unions reps and staff were not warned. This is a new practice on the group and we should have been consulted. Your RMT rep has objected to this, but still the trial goes ahead.

Both RMT and TSSA strongly oppose this scheme.
