In March 2015 TfL imposed 'Pay for Performance' (PfP) despite overwhelming opposition, and unprecedented strike action, by staff. Members of TSSA, Unite and RMT took strike action on three occasions.
Prior to PfP, base pay increases for all staff in bands 1-3 were negotiated with the trade unions. The pay rise was pensionable, and everyone received the same, subject to getting an 'achieved' P&D rating. This is still the case for bands 1-3 and equivalent grades in LUL.
Many long-standing and higher paid staff now receive no increase in pensionable pay, regardless of their performance rating. Under PfP this likely to be the case for some time, and the number of staff affected will increase.
TSSA, Unite and RMT remain in dispute with TfL regarding PfP. Nonetheless, we are engaging in pay talks with TfL with the purpose of achieving the best and fairest deal for staff.
