Tube Lines - Recognition and Equalities Forum

5 November 2012

TSSA has secured agreement that admin and technical grades will now receive the union negotiated pay rises rather than PRP going forward.

TSSA and Tube Lines have been involved in long-running negotiations following our campaign for recognition rights and equality of treatment for all Tube Lines staff last year.

While Tube Lines continue to refuse to grant collective bargaining to managers, we have secured agreement that admin and technical grades will now receive the union negotiated pay rises rather than PRP going forward.

Obviously, management grade members will be disappointed that you are not yet covered by collective bargaining. But, the pressure from our campaign did result in some decent PRP increases last year. TSSA commits to continue to press for managers to be brought within collective bargaining. We will never forget that you deserve the same rights and benefits as all other staff!

However, we feel that, while some critical issues remain outstanding, we have made reasonable progress in extending bargaining to a greater proportion of the workforce.

It is important that we understand your views on where we are and how we can take this forward. Please email your thoughts and ideas: chesterl@tssa.org.uk

Equality Forum

Tube Lines have conceded to the implementation of an Equality Forum designed to investigate and address issues of equality from pay to recruitment practices and so on.

This is a joint working party, not a negotiating forum, so we are keen to involve our wider membership in the discussions.

Any member of TSSA can seek nomination to the Equalities Forum providing you are not an existing rep. This is to ensure clarity of role.

The Equalities Forum is likely to be an influential and progressive body within Tube Lines so why not put your name forward? After nominations have been received, there will be an election to determine which nominees go forward as delegates.

Get involved

Nominate yourself for the Equalities Forum:

Email: chesterl@tssa.org.uk quoting “EQ Forum” in the subject line. Don’t forget to include your name, job title, grade and preferred contact details.

All nominations must be received by: Friday 16 November 2012.

Elections will take place the following week.
