Revenue Control

TfL TSEOs should be LU RCIs

As Unite members working in various TfL departments (Dial-a-Ride, bus revenue inspectors, streets enforcement workers, and others) gear up for another strike over pay on 28 February, TfL is now recruiting for a new grade of “Transport Support and Enforcement Officer” (TSEO), paid £27k per year, who...

RCIs vote for action

Revenue Control Inspectors in RMT have voted to take industrial action to resist the imposition of a two-tier workforce in the revenue department. There was a 100% vote for action short of a strike, and a 92% vote for strikes, on a 75% turnout.

RCI reps will now meet to discuss exactly what action...

Support the TfL workers' strikes!

Members of Unite working for Transport for London in revenue, enforcement, and Dial-a-Ride struck today, the first of four planned strikes on the last Friday of each month, until April. TfL has offered them a 1% pay rise, well below inflation. The workers held a lively picket outside Palestra,...

RCIs: Vote Yes for Action!

RMT has begun balloting Revenue Control Inspectors (RCIs) across London Underground, for strikes and action-short-of-strikes, in a ballot that closes on 20 February.

RCIs are defending their jobs against a restructure that will see a two-tier workforce created in revenue, with a new "Revenue Control...

I Spy RCIs?

Revenue Control Inspectors (RCIs) have increasingly been working in full uniform, whereas many operations were previously undertaken in plain clothes. LU's aim is clear: by putting more uniformed staff on stations, they're attempting to mask the impact of their job cuts. It makes it more difficult...

Piecemeal privatisation

LU used to get revenue inspectors to go out onto trains asking to see tickets in order to compile statistics on LU revenue lost due to unpaid fares.

Now LU has contracted out this element of a revenue inspector's duties to a private company. Its workers wear a hi vi emblazoned with 'in partnership...

RCIs Bad For Business?

Mike Brown promised at Fit for London that LU Revenue Control Inspector (RCI) numbers were not being reduced: "There is no plan whatsoever to cut Revenue Inspectors". But the truth appears otherwise....

Revenue managers keep spouting reduced fraud levels and new technology and talking about...

Frontline Experience

TfL has implemented a project called "Frontline Experience". It is a TfL wide plan not just applicable to London Underground, involving senior managers spending time with frontline operational staff in order to get experience of working on frontline operations.

Already, senior managers have stood...

RCI Vacancies?

Rumours reach us of RCI vacancies being left unfilled by management. Whatever the reason (money, anyhone?), it certainly can't be lack of interest. The waiting list for RCI posts is so long that last year, LUL offered those on the list jobs checking tickets on the buses!

RCIs On The Move?

LUL wants to move sub-surface RCIs from Baker Street to Wembley Park.

The only slight problem is ... they don't want to go! Not surprising, as it will mean more travelling for lots of them, and the facilities may not be as good.

Actually, there is another slight problem ... Wembley Park is not...
