Dear Colleague,

TRAIN PREPARATION PAYMENTS, TRANSPLANT MAINTENANCE STAFF
LONDON UNDERGROUND (ex-AP JNP)

Your RMT Reps recently raised an issue affecting Advanced Train Maintainer (Train Maintenance), Team Leader (Train Maintenance) and Duty Maintenance Manager members at Ruislip (Transplant) Depot who perform Train Preparation duties and sign off rolling stock as fit for service but are denied the associated payment. The Union has tried to enter into discussions with the Company to resolve this issue but there has been no progress so far.

Due to the intransigence from the Company, the National Executive Committee has now taken the decision to proceed with a ballot for strike action and other forms of industrial action short of a strike over this issue.

NOTE: Advanced Train Maintainer (Train Maintenance), Team Leader (Train Maintenance) and Duty Maintenance Manager members at Ruislip (Transplant) Depot are also affected by the Pay Parity ballot. You have received separate correspondence about this as well and will receive two separate ballot papers. Please make sure you vote YES in BOTH BALLOTS.

Ballot papers will be posted to you and your colleagues on Tuesday 21st November 2017 and the closing date for the ballot is Wednesday 6th December 2017. Please vote as soon as you receive your ballot paper and return it in the freepost envelope provided.

If you do not receive your voting paper, or know of a colleague who has not received it, please call the freephone helpline on 0800 376 3706, RMT Head Office on 0207 387 4771 or e-mail info@rmt.org.uk to request a replacement.

MAKE SURE YOU USE YOUR VOTE
VOTE ‘YES’ FOR STRIKE ACTION &
‘YES’ FOR INDUSTRIAL ACTION SHORT OF A STRIKE

I will keep you advised of all further developments.

Yours sincerely
 
Mick Cash
General Secretary
