ASLEF rejects LU offer

08 December 2015

ASLEF's executive committee this morning formally rejected London Underground's latest offer on the Night Tube and pay.

District 8 Organiser Finn Brennan said: 'Last Wednesday, ASLEF reps from every train crew depot on London Underground met to discuss the latest offer from the company on pay and Night Tube. Having listened to the views of members right across the combine, your representatives, and the negotiating team, were unanimous in opposing this offer.

'I reported on this to ASLEF’s executive committee who have, today, formally rejected the offer.It is now up to management to start to seriously engage to resolve this dispute. Our members have been extremely patient; you should have received apay rise last April.

'London Underground have refused to give it to you unless you agree to change your working conditions so they can run an all-night service at weekends. Quite rightly, your negotiating team, and your reps, have been determined not to accept an offer that does not give us the guarantees we need.

'We have repeatedly offered to have a concentrated period of discussions to resolve the dispute. LU have repeatedly refused.

'I will be reporting again to your EC in January who will then decide on the next steps we will take. But it is clear that LU cannot be allowed to believe that your patience is inexhaustible or can be mistaken for weakness.

'The negotiating team will continue to give detailed reports at ASLEF branch meetings.'
