Tube Bosses leaving stations unstaffed

Tube bosses are leaving stations unstaffed during traffic hours. It will come as no surprise to those of us who work on the Tube, but the 'revelation' was described as an exclusive by BBC London News today.

The BBC report states that:

"Four years ago today Transport for London (TfL) announced all London Underground ticket offices would be shut. 

Station members congratulated over FFtF dispute successes

We congratulate our stations members on mounting a convincing dispute and strike action against the company’s Fit For the Future/Stations re-organisation, and enabling our Reps and Lead Officer to do a great job through negotiations in repairing the damage done to the safety, staffing and general running of tube stations; including putting back 325 jobs.

Could Your iPad get you the Sack?

Download the new SFC News for news on iPads, data abuse and the latest on roster consultations on stations.

 

RMT reps are dealing with an alarming number of  cases where iPads, staff oysters, CCTV and even station evacuation sheets are being trawled to try and find evidence of wrongdoing.

With the imminent roll-out of the roster & coverage tool (RCT), which includes electronic booking on and off the potential for data to be used to discipline you, sometimes long after the event, is alarming.

Local Discussions on Rosters to Incorporate 325 New jobs to Start

Local reps will now be scruitinising LU's proposed new rosters that will include the 325 additional jobs promised as part of our ACAS agreement following our fantastic strike action in January.

You can download LU's proposal.

There is still some work to be done before we can be happy with the proposals to address lone working and roster balance but significant progress has been made.

Speak to your local rep for more detail about what is proposed for your area.
