ALL UNDERGROUND AND FORMER LT EMPLOYERS
BREACH OF MACHINERY – ISS (KAD CONTRACT) (LUL/14/2)
A report has been received from the Lead Officer, enclosing minutes of a meeting and exchanges of e-mails between our DLR Branch Secretary and the Company regarding a number of issues which are unresolved. Despite the best efforts of our RMT Reps it has not been possible to reach an agreement over rosters or pay and ISS management have now threatened to impose a new roster for our cleaning members from the 15th October.
The National Executive Committee has considered this matter, noted the breakdown in industrial relations and the breach of agreements across several issues, and taken the decision to inform the Company that a dispute situation now exists with ISS (KAD) and to prepare a ballot matrix. The Company has been informed accordingly and I will keep Branches advised of all further developments.
RATES OF PAY & CONDITIONS OF SERVICE 2017 – TRANSPORT FOR LONDON (LUL/0001/TFL)
Further to my previous Circular (IR/368/17, 23rd August 2017), the Company was advised of our rejection of the offer and asked to respond formally to the 12 demands put to them during the negotiations. A further meeting took place but no further improvement to the offer or any non-pay items was tabled and the Company has now confirmed it is implementing the original final offer.
The National Executive Committee has noted the report from the Lead Officer and the disappointing and unacceptable behaviour of the company and taken the decision to seek the views of the Reps. In the meantime the matter is referred into the Southern Sub-Committee for further prompt examination and report. I will keep Branches advised of all further developments.
CHRISTMAS & NEW YEAR LEAVE AND PAYMENT ARRANGEMENTS 2017/18 – LUL (LUL/7/2)
The Company has confirmed that the above arrangements remain the same as last year. Operational staff rostered to work on Christmas Day will receive their normal salary and those who volunteer to work additional duties will receive double time. New Year’s Eve payment arrangements are in accordance with the relevant agreements.
The National Executive Committee has noted the correspondence on file and referred the matter into the Southern Sub-Committee for examination and report. I will keep Branches advised of all further developments.
