RMT warns Metronet administrator over jobs and transfers
RMT: July 18 2007
LONDON UNDERGROUND’S biggest union, RMT, today gave notice to the administrator appointed for Metronet that any attempt made to cut jobs, pay or conditions or to forcibly transfer staff would lead to an industrial dispute.
“During today’s meeting the threat to impose 691 managerial redundancies on August 20 was suspended after we threatened to move into dispute,” RMT General Secretary Bob Crow said.
“We also informed the administrator that the union would be demanding that infrastructure work would now remain in-house with staff employed directly by Transport for London."
