TO ALL LONDON UNDERGROUND TRAIN OPERATORS & INSTRUCTOR OPERATORS

Dear Colleague,

36 HOUR 4 DAY WEEK TRIAL ARRANGEMENTS
TRAIN OPERATORS & INSTRUCTOR OPERATORS
(ROP & COS 2015 AND NIGHT TUBE – LONDON UNDERGROUND)

Further to my letter dated 22nd October regarding the above, the referendum has concluded with members voting as follows:-

Question: Do you give consent for RMT to negotiate towards a 36 hour, 4 day week voluntary trial at 2 locations, including temporary changes to the Framework Agreement?

Total Votes Cast        609
Number Voting ‘Yes’        354
Number Voting ‘No’        255
Spoilt Papers            1

This matter has been considered by the General Grades Committee, which has reiterated that this does not imply acceptance of any proposals or amendments to any frameworks or parameters. What this result means is that further discussions around the arrangements for a possible 36 hour 4 day week voluntary trial at 2 locations can take place. Any changes would have to be agreed by both RMT and our sister union before implementation.

I am currently making arrangements for a meeting of all RMT Train Operator Representatives to discuss the ‘4 day week’ and I will of course keep you advised of all further developments.

Yours sincerely
 
Mick Cash
General Secretary
