East Ham Branch demand an end to violent assaults at work. Support the action

Great work by the local reps and the East Ham Branch
In the wake of unprecedented violence against staff on LUL on the east end of the district line our comrades put on industrial action to say no more
We are not prepared to accept being assaulted at work 
The incident at West Ham vindicated this position 
Attacks on our members are unacceptable 
If LU do not resolve to put this right we are prepared to escalate our action
The attacks on our members across the combine must mark the end of lone working

When off sick here’s our advice: don’t call me I’ll call you!

 

An agreement from SFC dated 2005

Tube bosses plan to close all Revenue Control line offices

RMT revenue reps are to discuss all options including possible industrial action over LULs appalling decision to close all Line Revenue Offices.

The proposal is that all RCIs will be based at Baker Street in the current revenue control office. This includes all locker, shower and PC access only being available at Baker Street, an office that barely suits 40 odd people there now.

With nearly 140 RCIs being planned to move there , it’s a case of treating RCIs like sardines. It also means journey times of up to an hour to access mess facility’s and lockers.

Blog: Staff Our Stations

It has been a month since the station grades conference and the launch of “Staff our Stations”. The launch of this initiative has a truly national feel with national implications that will affect people up and down the land. This is also an initiative that has gathered momentum locally. TFL have already requested a FOI (Freedom of Information) to the gather the statistics on the amount of time that stations are left derelict of staff and this equates to approx 5 hours each day for every day of the year.
