LUL Signals Boxing Day Dispute
The RMT have been talking to LUL (ex-Metronet areas) for nearly four years regarding working over the Christmas Period. We have asked for movement towards maximising how many staff can be off should they wish and also requesting a bonus form people forced to work on Boxing Day, as happens in other parts of the business.
We have been told that this is just a ‘normal working day’ and that is NOT acceptable to our union and we have therefore notified LUL of our intention to Ballot Signals Staff in Incident and Maintenance in former Metronet Areas (does not include Tube Lines).
We are hopeful that our members will return their ballot papers on mass so that we reach the legal thresholds that the Anti-Trade Union Laws now place upon us.
The papers go out Thursday 30th November and the closing date for the ballot is Tuesday 12th December
Please be aware that this dispute DOES NOT involve any Project Staff working over the Christmas Period.
If you do not received you Ballot Papers by the 4th December, then please contact me or ring RMT Head Office on 0800 376 3706
Please VOTE YES
