Campaigners fighting union-busters SODEXO to link up with Orgreave justice fight in London on Friday
ACTIVISTS FROM transport union RMT, fighting union-busting outsourcing outfit SODEXO, will be linking up with campaigners from the Orgreave Truth and Justice Campaign in central London on Friday as both organisations seek to apply pressure for justice in their respective campaigns.
There is a flyer attached to this post, please distribute it amongst colleagues.
Over the last festive period Piccadilly trains ran a service down to Ealing Broadway. This was on the understanding from management it was one off and to help with the engineering works.
Why management are doing this
Management have produced the Xmas duties for this year and, again, it shows duties going to Ealing Broadway. Our union believes this is a management ploy to establish the principle of cross-line working.
No genuine reason
The RMT has seen a London Underground document which states trains 'with or without drivers' could be introduced on the Piccadilly Line from 2022 - just eight years away. The document, which has been released as an information pack for managers to pass on to workers, also explains that Platform Edge Doors will need to be installed across the line and that preparation work for this could begin from 2016.

We note the correspondence from London Underground Ltd. We further note the report from our Regional Organiser and the view of our representatives that this is the basis of a settlement of our dispute.
We therefore will not take strike action under the current mandate. We remain vigilant on all the issues that formed part of this dispute, and note that a follow-up meeting will be held.
We note the report from our Regional Organiser and the progress made in talks, and that London Underground Ltd has agreed to extend the period of our ballot mandate by 28 days. We note that the R.O. and the majority of representatives believe that sufficient progress has been made to suspend the industrial action and we therefore instruct the General Secretary to immediately advise the company and our members that the strike action due to begin at 12:00 on Wednesday 4 December 2013 is suspended.
Dear Finsbury Park Branch Member,
As you are no doubt aware LUL has announced a massive attack on the jobs and conditions of mainly station based grades.
This is being done due to the massive budget cuts announced by Central government to the TfL budget mainly due to the actions of a handful of people in the banking sector some years ago.
They are asking us to pay through our jobs and conditions for their mistakes and this is not acceptable.
