More than 50 drivers at Arnos Grove on the Piccadilly line refused to drive trains during the recent strike by Tubelines staff, despite a ferocious offensive by management to bully drivers onto trains. Local reps challenged management's claims that qualified Emergency Response Unit (ERU) staff were working normally and pointed out that LUL was refusing to provide our union with details of those alleged to be working and of their competencies and qualifications.

This resolution, submitted by Finsbury Park and seconded by Stratford no.1, was carried unanimously by the April meeting of the Regional Council ...
This Regional Council calls on the GS to seek out and find all known independent travel and watchdog pressure groups with a view to building a strong joint campaign against London Underground's reckless assault on the safety of the travelling public in London. We firmly believe that if we can make the clear link between the proposed job cuts and the lowering of passenger safety and security since the recent atrocities committed on 7/7/2005, we will gain the support of the general public, particularly in light of the recent bombings that occurred on the Moscow subway. A chain is only as strong as its weakest link.

Sacking of Drivers
Over the past couple of months there have been several issues including London underground sacking drivers. We at Brixton have had two this year. One of the issues is a said 96% attendance standard. There is no such figure anywhere. If asked to sign any documents stating any attendance percentage targets, do not! Speak to your union rep.
