TSSA accepts London Underground pay offer

TSSA has agreed an above inflation pay deal with London Underground (LU) for 2019 and beyond, after talks at ACAS.

The settlement follows months of protracted negotiations stretching back to last February and ends the threat of industrial action on pay.

TSSA is the first union on the Underground network to move on the offer which – having been revised by LU – covers the four year pay period from 2019.

The offer was accepted as a result of a vote among union reps on Tuesday and after the union had canvassed views of members working across LU.

LU’s accepted offer is RPI plus 0.2 per cent in each year – backdated in the first instance to April 2019.

TSSA Organising Director, Lorraine Ward, said: 

"This settlement shows the power of our union and collective bargaining. I’m pleased that after many months of little or no progress we have been able to reach a deal which is good for our members.

"This is an improved offer from that which was on the table at the outset and locks in RPI plus deals in the coming years. I’m pleased to say it also removes the very real threat of industrial action we were facing on the Underground.

"We know all too well the challenging times LU has been faced with as a result of the loss of government funding in the form of the operating grant, and the delays to Crossrail.

"Rightly our members have been frustrated over the length of time it has taken to achieve a reasonable pay offer, whilst overstretched and under resourced working on front line stations.

"They now know that they can get on with the most important job of keeping London Underground running safely day in day out - and do so with a fair pay deal."

TSSA has members at London Underground in operational and non-operational grades, including stations staff, service control and managers and admin.
