Management throw policies and agreements out of the window as the RMT takes a stand for drivers.
Following months of turning the screw on members who are sick or make mistakes at work, the “new style” management thought that we would just lie down and take it. The latest insult resulted in duty sheets being produced that attempted to rob the members at the west end of the line of 5 minutes booking on time. As soon as management got wind that this was going to unite the line against them, a new set of sheets were produced that adhered to agreements. As if by magic! This is the thin end of the wedge. Management clearly want to cut your union out and do as they please. If this is allowed to continue you will very soon come to work in fear of your job.
Attached is the latest newsletter giving background information on the treatment of the 33, of how LU are ripping up agreements and why all grades on London Underground should be balloted and vote yes.
The J33 are available to visit branches and workplaces to answer any questions you may have. Don't let them divide us.
Please forward, circulate and display on noticeboards.

The company want to reap the benefits of the Admin Grade Review which they dumped because they didn't want to financially reward staff for going above and beyond their role. Some people are being told by their Centurions that they have to take part in this fiasco, you

Mike Brown Confirms LU to attack Stations Jobs
On February 18th Our General Secretary Bob Crow met with Mike Brown to discuss the future of Jobs on the combine. LU are pressing ahead with plans to remove night-turn supervisors and gave no assurances about the grade of staff left to run the stations through the traffic day.

that correct procedures are followed by companies in Engineering hours.
