The following resolution submitted by the Bakerloo line Branch and seconded by Finsbury Park was carried unanimously at the Regional Council meeting on the 25th August:
This Regional Council notes that LU wish to extend the driving parameters and amount of turns worked on the Bakerloo Line to 6 during the Olympics next year. We are also aware that management wish to bring in rest day working during that period.
This Regional Council believes that any extension of the hours worked on trains and rest day working will be unsafe and will give a precedent to LU to bring in similar changes to drivers framework agreements at a future date.
This Regional Council agrees to oppose any such moves and mandates our representatives accordingly”
