Boycott AFM Functionality Expansion-Jobs Depend on it

LU Management have informed the TU’s that they will be expanding the AFM Functionality to CSA’s.This now means that both CSA’s and SAMF’s will be expected to carry out ticket selling activities outside of the Ticket Offices,something which RMT are opposed to.LU have told us that they will initially be running a ‘pilot’ on a voluntary basis at Bank Station and also using SRT staff across the network from December to early January and thereafter will introduce it company wide.The first thing that CSA’s must remember is that their Job Description does not include or allow for the selling of

Appeal For Members To Attend Picket Lines And Show Support For Arwyn Thomas

Dear Station Staff Member

You will probably be aware that your Union RMT have been defending a series of attacks by LUL Management on Trade Union Reps,Members and Activists.LU have been engaged in a campaign to smash Trade Unionism in the workplace.

GGC A fair representation of the workers?

I am thoroughly fed up with the GGC of this Union seemingly ignoring anything that we as members decide upon.

This time they have ignored our call for a boycott of the AFM machines and all the other suggestions we made at the meeting where the GGC insisted we were released to put our feelings forward as "recommendations to the GGC" time and time again it feels like were not only fighting management but some very odd decision making by the union beaurocrats. No wonder we are losing members hand over fist.

*** Please note that RMT has not yet been able to officially declare the boycott referred to in this decision. ***

OSP Update 3rd June meeting

As LU continue to try to steamroll through the disgraceful plans for the reorganisation of groups and the attack on jobs, your functional reps met management again on the 3rd to continue the not so meaningful consultation process. Having had grave concerns over the terms of reference for these meetings we were proved right by management and slightly bemused by their hypocritical view on how these meetings should be run.

Letter from your functional reps: Why we would not participate in LU's 'meeting' today

Your Stations and Revenue functional council reps today attended a meeting regarding the OSP (London Underground’s proposed 7-800 job cuts). At that meeting, your reps pointed out to management that due to all four trade unions registering two ‘failures to agree’ at Company Council level, we are not engaging in any meeting at functional level until those matters have been resolved.
