Arriva Rail London Protest

Head Office Circular: NP/216/21
21 June 2021

To: The Secretary

Dear Colleague

There are currently a number of issues affecting RMT members on the London Overground, namely:

Arriva Rail London and Carlisle Support Services’ (CSS) refusal to TUPE transfer TSOs, currently employed by STM, onto the CSS contract following Arriva Rail London’s decision to terminate the STM contract.
CSS’s poor pay offer for its cleaning and RSO workers employed on the London Overground
Breach of agreements by Arriva Rail London, including the longstanding failure to fill vacancies permanently and the changing of rosters without negotiations.

The Union needs to send a strong message to Arriva Rail London that these practices will not be tolerated and to demand justice and fairness for all workers employed on the London Overground.

A socially distanced protest has been scheduled to take place outside the Arriva Rail London head office, Overground House, 125 Finchley Road, Swiss Cottage, London NW3 6HY on Monday 28th June at 1530 – 1800.

All RMT members on London Overground are encouraged to attend the protest if available. Please bring a mask and publicise the protest to members.

Yours sincerely

Michael Lynch
General Secretary
