RMT rejects ‘insult’ of a pay offer

Leaders
at the Rail Maritime and Transport union have rejected a pay offer for
thousands of London Underground workers, website Ananova reports.

RMT
bosses warned of a dispute unless an improvement is made within the next two
weeks.

Ananova
reports that the RMT said an offer of a 2 per cent rise or a three-year deal
worth 2.5 per cent now and at least 2 per cent in each of the following two
years is an insult.

Bob
Crow, general secretary of the union which represents 8,000 Tube workers, said:
"LU must come up with a serious offer rather than this insult.

"A
rise of 2 per cent falls well short of our members’ aspirations, especially at
a time of such great uncertainty.

"We
have therefore given LU until April 18 to come up with a sensible offer or we
will consider ourselves in dispute."
