Wot No Back Pay?!

We were due a new pay settlement in April 2019. Consequently we're now all owed more than a year's back pay, following the agreement of a new deal in late March, amounting to RPI+0.2% for four years (2.7% in year one). The company is currently saying that the back pay will be paid in June or July's...

No pay cut, no jobs lost!

Mayor Khan has taken to BBC Radio London to announce that TfL may run out of money to pay staff by the end of the month, and may need to cut services unless the government steps in.

It’s right that Khan should appeal to the government for funding; this is something he should’ve been doing loudly...

Furlough can you go?

TfL and LU bosses have announced, via a bulletin from TfL Commissioner Mike Brown, that they intend to explore the use of the government's "Job Retention Scheme" to place some of us on "furlough", essentially a paid leave of absence. The government scheme subsidises 80% of employees' wages, with...

LU bosses use coronavirus crisis to pinch pennies on pay

LU bosses have cynically exploited the coronavirus crisis to pressure unions into accepting a shoddy pay settlement that three out of four had previously rejected.

The Covid-19 pandemic has changed the context, but we should not abandon our struggle over pay and conditions by accepting...

Aslef pay ballot smashes thresholds

Aslef members have voted by a 95.2% majority for strikes to win an improved settlement on pay and conditions, on a 74.5% turnout. These figures smash the arbitrary thresholds of the Tories' anti-union laws.

The RMT's ballot runs until 31 March. Unions should liaise, now, about the best timing for...

LU pay/conditions: strikes can win a better deal

Negotations with LU over pay/conditions have taken us as far as we can go. To win a deal that brings us closer to our demands, we need industrial action.

Aslef has already committed to ballot its members. Its ballot begins on 28 February and closes on 9 March. Tubeworker encourages all readers who...

Lillie Bridge engineers: ballot now on LU pay!
