TfL managers' salary deduction threat

13 February 2015

Following discussions between TSSA and TfL regarding our issues with the P&D process and the ongoing action short of strike, TfL have confirmed that:

“Special TfL Company Council meeting – Review of mid year process and Performance Management Information and Guidance

At the meeting on 23 February 2015 TfL will provide an update on the practical application of the performance management information and guidance and there will be a specific agenda item at that meeting on ensuring objectivity through the performance assessment process.

Deductions of pay in relation to action short of a strike (participation in performance and development review process by line managers)

Notwithstanding that industrial action short of a strike is being undertaken in relation to the dispute over PfP, until the 23 February (when the above meeting takes place) TfL will not process or enter any deductions in SAP in relation to TfL managers who are currently not undertaking activity which TfL has defined as that which line managers should be undertaking in the course of their normal management duties.

This does not prejudice TfL's ability to undertake deductions from pay following the meeting on 23 February 2013 or the union's ability to take and call industrial action (strike or action short of a strike). If the meeting on 23 February 2015 does not take place the parties will discuss the above approach in the first instance.”

In practice, this means that the status quo remains until the scheduled meeting on P&Ds takes place and we have an opportunity to engage with TfL over our concerns.

We hope that this allays any immediate fears that line managers may have.
