Our Ref: LUL/14/2

5th April 2017

Dear Colleague,

Breakdown in Industrial Relations - London Underground (Fleet Grades)

All RMT Fleet members are congratulated for their solidarity and support for the on-going industrial action since Tuesday 7th March where members are instructed:-

•    Not to work any overtime or attend training courses outside of normal working hours
•    Not to carry out any higher grade duty work
•    Not to change any shifts or work locations to assist with maintenance
•    No trainers are to carry out training for anyone on a job that is not their substantive role
•    No coaches to coach anyone on a job that is not their substantive role
•    Not to work if there is not a valid and in date WRA, COSHH, and Manual Handling Assessment
•    Not to work if there is no first aider on site

Since this action started, your RMT Representatives have been in discussions with the Company and the next meeting is due to take place at ACAS on Wednesday 12th April. Although some progress has been made, a number of the key issues remain outstanding and it is therefore vital that we keep up the pressure on the Company to ensure that management attend the next meeting with a genuine desire to reach a successful resolution to this dispute.

SUPPORT THE ACTION – UNITY IS STRENGTH

I will of course keep you advised of all further developments.

Yours sincerely
 
Mick Cash
General Secretary
