'Good progress' in talks sees Piccadilly strike date pushed back

BREAKDOWN IN INDUSTRIAL RELATIONS, TRAIN OPERATORS, PICCADILLY LINE – LONDON UNDERGROUND (LUL/14/2)

Further to my previous Circular (IR/073/16, 17th March 2016), members took part in solidly supported strike action on Wednesday 23rd and Thursday 24th March which closed down the Piccadilly Line. However, management took the aggressive stance of threatening our members that they would lose wages if they refused to book on at Oakwood Depot and the National Executive Committee took the decision to rescind this instruction.

We laid out a clear way to resolve this dispute. We insisted that the six warnings at Oakwood were cancelled and a Directors review be called for another specific case.

Both were answered with a "no" and an extremely hostile management approach

We would have been prepared to outline a working plan to resolve other key issues with timetabled resolution talks to be led by a General Manager but managment thwarted that.
