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.
If you are asked to attend a interview, take a rep. If you are asked for an unofficial chat regarding your attendance or performance, take a rep. All of the initial meetings, interviews are the foundations of what could happen next.
Level one meeting
At the last level one on the 24th March, a number of items raised.. The minutes are displayed in the hallway at the foot of the stairs near the toilets. If you require further information please let me know. The next level one is June 9th. Any items are to be put in the agenda by 26th May.
Surgery day on 19th May where I will be available for suggestions. If there are any issues you would like to be raised beforehand then contact me on the details below.
09 Stock Training.
Practical training on the 09 stock was agreed at the joint working party to be one full rounder in automatic operation and three staffs in manual. It was also agreed that drivers who request additional training would get it on request. Please complete the form and take a copy before handing it in. If you require a form please contact me on the details below.
There are a lot of reasons why drivers should be concerned for the stations job cuts. One very important fact to point out is that current procedures for drivers include the use of station staff and if not followed correctly, would sanction disciplinary action to the driver. What would we do without station staff in the event of, one-unders, PAs being operated, lost property?
Look out for another newsletter next month!
Never go into a meeting on your own. Take a RMT rep with you
