REDUNDANCIES, LONDON UNDERGROUND 4LM CONTRACT – THALES GTS

Our Ref: LUL/16/3

31st October 2018

Dear Colleague,

REDUNDANCIES, LONDON UNDERGROUND 4LM CONTRACT – THALES GTS

Following yesterday’s ballot results, the National Executive Committee has taken the decision to call on all Thales members working on the London Underground 4LM Contract to take industrial action by NOT WORKING ANY OVERTIME from 00:01 hours on Wednesday 14th November 2018, until further notice.

As you know, this dispute is over the Company’s intention to make 11 redundancies and 20 redeployments in the testing and commissioning area on the LU 4LM Contract to upgrade the Metropolitan and District Line Signalling systems.

The Company did not consult RMT before taking the decision to make cuts and the Union strongly believes that the process used to select those at risk of redundancy is flawed and unfair. The Company was advised immediately that RMT does not accept any compulsory redundancies but have refused to halt the process to attend dispute resolution talks at ACAS.


STAND FIRM TOGETHER – SUPPORT THE ACTION

I will keep you advised of all further developments.

Yours sincerely

Mick Cash
General Secretary
