Waterloo & City Line Service Control Staff to Strike for Pay Uplift

Re-Grading Of Waterloo & City Line Service Control Staff, London Underground

Dear Colleagues,

Further to my letter of 25th November 2014, as you know members voted overwhelmingly in support of strike action. Whilst discussions with London Underground are still continuing no agreement has been reached on your claim for re-grading to recognise the hard work you undertake.

The General Grades Committee has, therefore, called the following strike action:-

All members are instructed not to book on for any shifts that commence between:-

Reinstate Vicky, Alex and Noel immediately

Reinstate Vicky Hayward!

GGC decision, 30 September

That we note with regret that on 29 September, London Underground Ltd summarily dismissed Sister Vicky Hayward. We are shocked and appalled that the company chose to disregard all the arguments and evidence that Sister Hayward and her representative put forward, and persisted in using managers' statements as to what they had seen on CCTV footage as "evidence" despite the actual footage having been destroyed.

We note the legal advice received, which confirms that LUL's actions are in breach of data protection law and employment law.

Central Line Suspended As Masonry Falls On Track

The RMT's Trains Health and Safety council (THSC) have responded to an incident today which saw masonry fall onto the track at Mile End on the Central line.

The council is seeking further information on what could have been a very serious incident, and have written to LUL bosses for further details.

The Letter
Could you supply us with all the information you have on today's incident at Mile End Station. We gather that lumps of masonry, as large as a dot matrix, fell approx 10ft from the station roof to the track at the W/B starter.

Report of Bank group Level 1 meeting, Thursday 26 June

MORE STAFF FOR BANK GROUP? YOUR HELP REQUIRED!

RMT put the case for more staff on the group, in particular:

  • more weekend staff at Bank
  • an additional weekday middle-turn CSA at St. Paul’s
  • adjusting staffing at Chancery Lane during the evening peak

If there are other specific times and locations which you would like to be considered, please let me know.

Management agreed to put together a ‘business case’ for these. But we need evidence!

Waterloo & City Industrial Action Causes Line Closure

Service Control

From RMT Senior Assistant General Secretary Mick Cash

Further to my circular (IR/37/14) dated 23rd January 2014,branches will recall that our Service Control members on the Waterloo and City Line are taking industrial action short of strike action over the union’s legitimate and reasonable demand for re-grading. I can advise branches that this action is holding firm and that on one occasion the Waterloo & City Line had to close due to lack of cover.
