FIXED TERM CONTRACTS, WORKSHOP STAFF, PICCADILLY LINE – TUBE LINES

Our Ref: LUL/13/2

9th August 2017

Dear Colleague,

FIXED TERM CONTRACTS, WORKSHOP STAFF, PICCADILLY LINE – TUBE LINES

Further to my letter dated 27th July regarding the above, the discussions with your RMT Reps regarding rostering during the 3 month leaf fall period have concluded with an agreement covering the next 2 years to allow extra lifting work due to the leaf fall season for 2017 and 2018.

This matter has been considered by the National Executive Committee, which has congratulated all Piccadilly Line AP Fleet members and reps on waging a most spirited and effective dispute leading to success in resisting the implementation of a two tier workforce via the introduction of 35 new members of staff on two year fixed term contracts.

Every aspect of our joint strategy has been achieved including no use of agency staff, any redeployment being temporary and solely within the Tube Lines/LUL family, no onerous rosters and ultimately, the 35 new starters now on fully employed contracts.

The Company has been advised accordingly and the Union will of course continue to monitor the implementation of the recent agreements.


Yours sincerely

 
Mick Cash
General Secretary
