Metronet staff to vote on pay offer

The
RMT union’s 1,400 members at London Underground maintenance company Metronet
are to vote on an improved pay and conditions offer, with a recommendation to
accept.

The
one-year offer would bring a minimum pay increase of 3.2 per cent, with bigger
increases for apprentices and some skilled and technical staff.

Staff
will also work a 35-hour week by January 2006 and gain a 75 per cent travel
discount for apprentices and trainees.

A
24-hour strike by RMT members caused chaos for commuters on the Tube last month.

"Our
members, as ever, will have the final say, and the offer will now be put to
them in a referendum, with an executive recommendation to accept," said
Bob Crow, RMT general secretary.
