BREAKDOWN IN INDUSTRIAL RELATIONS, TRAIN OPERATORS
VICTORIA LINE – LONDON UNDERGROUND
STRIKE ACTION IS SUSPENDED
As you are aware, your RMT negotiating team has held a series of talks with the Company at ACAS and following the latest developments, the National Executive Committee has taken the decision to SUSPEND THE STRIKE ACTION called for Tuesday 3rd to Wednesday 4th September. All members are therefore instructed to book on and work as normal.
During the talks with the Company, proposals to find a resolution to the issues in the dispute including Service Control and Reps Release, Pay Deductions, Disciplinaries, Attendance at Work and our Framework Agreement were discussed. The Company has stated it is committed to implementing jointly agreed proposals to improve working relationships between RMT members and Victoria Line management and further detailed discussions are planned with specified review periods.
I will be closely monitoring developments and if the Company renege on its current position RMT will call further industrial action in this dispute.
