train-5.jpg

Management are still pushing to introduced a new procedure for when a rear M door alarm activates – proceeding to the next station rather than investigating first.

We believe this is unsafe for a number of reasons. It is also an example of management’s attempts to dumb down our job by taking away the need for a train operator.

Interim Report from CCSG on Location & Review Process

Displacement Process and Review
We held further talks about the displacement process and proposed review at Company Council Sub-group today. Once again we were not satisfied with LU’s response to the issues we’ve raised and the company has agreed not to proceed with the review until they have considered their position further.

no-cuts-real.png

Hands Off London Transport has received some testimonials from London Underground workers working at stations where the ticket office has already closed. They clearly show the obviously-damaging impact these closures have on customer service. If LU really wants its customer service to be “world class”, it need to stop closures and re-open ticket offices!

Leaflet for CSAs on Temporary Contracts

I have posted a leaflet that I have been using when speaking to the new recruits at Ashfield House. I am planning further materials on this issue but don't let that stop branches or reps from producing your own leaflets aimed at these members and potential members.
