Dear Transport for London,

From 1998 to present day, can you please provide all pay offers made to train operators. Be these bonus payments for Boxing Day / olympics 2012 or pay increases of annual salary. What I’m interested in is what the original offers were and what the offer was on agreement with ASLEF trade union. Also was there any ballot for industrial action during these agreements. listing how many days of action were taken each time. For example offer of x was made 1998. After 2 days of strike a revised offer of y was made and accepted.

Yours faithfully,

M Mesarosova

Dear M Mesarosova

 

Our ref: FOI-0090-2021/GH

 

Thank you for your request received by Transport for London (TfL) on 20
April 2020 asking for information about pay offers made to train operators
since 1998.

 

The Government has announced a series of measures to tackle the
Coronavirus. It is essential for London, and in particular for all
critical workers, that we continue to provide a safe transport network
that enables them to make the journeys they need to.

 

In current circumstances, we are not able to answer FOI requests readily
and we ask that you please do not make a request to us at present.

 

Answering FOI requests will require the use of limited resources and the
attention of staff who could be supporting other essential activity. In
any event, please note that our response time will be affected by the
current situation and so you may wish to reconsider the timing of this
request. Please notify us as soon as possible if you would like to
withdraw your request at the current time.

 

Should you wish to proceed with the request we will aim to issue a
response by 19 May 2020 in accordance with the Freedom of Information
Act 2000 and our information access policy. We publish a substantial
range of information on our website on subjects including operational
performance, contracts, expenditure, journey data, governance and our
financial performance. This includes data which is frequently asked for in
FOI requests or other public queries. Please check
[1]http://www.tfl.gov.uk/corporate/transpar... to see if this helps you.

 

We will publish anonymised versions of requests and responses on the
[2]www.tfl.gov.uk website. We will not publish your name and we will send
a copy of the response to you before it is published on our website.

 

In the meantime, if you would like to discuss this matter further, please

Dear M Mesarosova

 

Our ref: FOI-0090-2021/GH

 

Thank you for your request received by Transport for London (TfL) on 20
April 2020 asking for information about pay offers made to train operators
since 1998.

 

Your request has been considered under the requirements of the Freedom of
Information Act 2000 and our information access policy.

 

I can confirm that we do hold the information you require. However, to
provide the information you have requested would exceed the ‘appropriate
limit’ of £450 set by the Freedom of Information (Appropriate Limit and
Fees) Regulations 2004.

 

Under section 12 of the FOI Act, we are not obliged to comply with
requests if we estimate that the cost of determining whether we hold the
information, locating and retrieving it and extracting it from other
information would exceed the appropriate limit. In this instance, we
estimate that the time required to answer your request would exceed 18
hours which, at £25 per hour (the rate stipulated by the Regulations),
exceeds the ‘appropriate limit’.

 

We do not have a central historical record of full detail of awards and
their corresponding history. It is usual for each deal to go through
complex negotiations and several iterations of offers. Details of offers
for extras e.g. bonus payments are often done separately through other
discussions and would require additional work.

 

You have requested this information for a period of 22 years. Locating and
compiling the requested information would easily exceed the appropriate
limit of 18 hours in normal times, however, some of the relevant
information is held in paper records at our offices which is currently
inaccessible while we are impacted by the Covid-19 recommendations and the
majority of our office based staff are working from home. Your request
would therefore take even longer to answer at the current time.

 

Although your request can take the form of a question, rather than a
request for specific documents, TfL does not have to answer your question
if it would require the creation of new information or the provision of a
judgement, explanation, advice or opinion that was not already recorded at
the time of your request. If you have specific questions relating to these
topics we may be more easily able to respond to these than to a request
for any information held.

 

The Government has announced a series of measures to tackle the
Coronavirus. It is essential for London, and in particular for all
critical workers, that we continue to provide a safe transport network
that enables them to make the journeys they need to.

 

In current circumstances, we are not able to answer FOI requests readily
and we ask that you please do not make a request to us at present.

 

Answering FOI requests will require the use of limited resources and the
attention of staff who could be supporting other essential activity. In
any event, please note that our response time will be affected by the
current situation.

 

If you are not satisfied with this response please see the attached
information sheet for details of your right to appeal.

 

Yours sincerely
