RATP Dev London is pleased to have reached a mutually beneficial settlement with London Sovereign staff last week, in addition to the settlement previously reached with Quality Line staff.
Regrettably, London United routes continue to be affected by strike action.
RATP Dev London has faced losses for the last 2 years and has relied on financial support from RATP Group. Losses are projected again into 2021. The situation at London United is particularly challenging.
Despite the significant financial challenges, RATP Dev London has made several different pay offers, which Unite representatives either rejected or deferred presenting to the staff.
RATP Dev’s offer includes the best possible pay rise above inflation and no changes to terms and conditions.
With a ballot planned by Unite in another 8 days (April 6th), now is the time for Unite to reconsider the strike actions till then and find a positive resolution to the dispute at London United. The long-term viability of the business can only be achieved by all parties working together to find a mutually beneficial resolution.
We apologise again to passengers for the inconvenience and disruption to journeys.
