Bus Driver Retention Scheme

We're waiting for Simon Paines to read recent responses and update the status.

Dear Transport for London,

As a driver for one of your contracted suppliers with over 9 years continual service, I have so far missed out on benefiting from the Bus driver retention scheme.

Could you please advise the formula used for calculating the payment made to Zero Hours Staff that have been continuously employed for a single organisation driving TfL service buses in excess of 3 years.

To clarify the request, the information requested is how the payment is calculated for an individual that does not have a fixed number of hours or days per week. i.e confirmation that a driver employed under these circumstances is actually eligible for payment of this retention bonus and secondly advise as to how actual payment is calculated.

Yours faithfully,
Simon Paines

Dear Simon Paines

Thank you for your request received by Transport for London (TfL) on 23
April 2020 asking for information about the Bus Driver Retention Scheme.

 

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 22 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
do not hesitate to contact me.

 

Yours sincerely

Dear Simon Paines

 

Our ref: FOI-0106-2021/GH

 

Thank you for your request received by Transport for London (TfL) on 23
April 2020 asking for information about the Bus Driver Retention Scheme.

 

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

 

The scheme is designed for permanent members of staff who get regular
contractual payments, whether that be full or part-time. However, as the
amount of hours worked a week and the continuity of service may differ
significantly for drivers, it is best to discuss the details with your
operator. You can do this directly or through a staff representative at
the many forums that exist for the staff to raise pay and condition issues
at their respective companies.

 

While we cannot comment on individual cases as we are not the employer, we
can say the principles of the scheme entail reduced payments on a pro rata
basis for drivers who work less than full-time hours. It may be worth you
exploring your operator’s part-time and full-time work definitions and
looking at what your average hours may have been over the past three
years. If you think there has been an error, it should be possible for
your company to resubmit your case and for an adjustment payment to be
made.

 

Please note, the Government has announced a series of measures to tackle
the coronavirus. It is essential for London, that we continue to provide a
safe transport network for essential journeys.

 

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
