Question

Further to my Question No: 2166 / 2012 regarding payments from TfL to Trainpeople agency. I have been informed that these agency workers are still waiting for the backdated enhancement of their wages (in line with TfL pay) as agreed in November 2011. I would be grateful if you could confirm whether this is true and if so explain why the arrears have not been cleared and also indicate when will the outstanding payments be made to the relevant agency staff members?

Answer for Agency workers on London Underground: Backdated payments

Answered By: 
The Mayor

London Underground agreed amendments to Trainpeople agency's rates in mid-2012 which included back-pay to Christmas 2011. LU has paid all the invoices received from Trainpeople so far.

I understand that further invoices are awaited for the backdated additional pay covering the mid-May to July 2012 period. Within a week of receiving those, LU will be able to process the payments to Trainpeople.

As the employer of the agency workers, Trainpeople is responsible for passing on to their employees any outstanding pay that may be due to them.
