Latest RMT Circular

December 6, 2016

BREAKDOWN IN INDUSTRIAL RELATIONS, TRAIN OPERATORS, PICCADILLY LINE – LONDON UNDERGROUND (LUL/14/2)

 Further to my previous Circular (IR/361/16, 25th November 2016), talks took place with the Company at ACAS on 25th November, 1st, 2nd and 5th December  in an effort to avoid the strike action due to commence from 21:30 hours this evening. These were attended by the new LUL JNP Director and good progress was made with management moving to our position on some key issues.

The National Executive Committee has considered this matter and taken the decision to cancel the planned strike action on Tuesday 6th and Wednesday 7th December 2016 as the major issues of this dispute have been ceded by management and are therefore resolved.

LUL has confirmed that there are no foreseeable plans to extend the use of Cockfosters Depot facilities and all members will continue to receive full familiarisation. A SPAD Policy briefing with management will take place in conjunction with the Trans Functional Council Reps to seek to resolve any negative perceptions and to ensure the process is undertaken fairly and consistently. Assurances have been received on other issues and Brother Gary Fitzpatrick’s safety has been protected by removing the other party from the workplace while the matter is resolved through the proper procedures.
