Meeting: Defend Gary Carney

Dear Colleagues

As you will know, Vaughan Thomas of Trains Functional Council has advised you all of a zoom meeting organised for this Friday 16th April at 11.15 hours in order to address Gary Carney’s dismissal situation.  The purpose of this message is to urge all representatives to try and attend and thus ensure maximum turnout. I would also like to make known to you details of the National Executive Committee’s decision on this matter giving rise to this meeting.

Jubilee Line rejects CCTV trial

London Underground have announced their decision to implement a month long trial of new in-cab monitor images showing six segments at Bond Street Southbound platform. RMT reps objected strenuously to this idea. We believe London Underground’s plan increases risk and is worse than we had before at Bond Street. Management refused to consider our concerns and have pushed ahead with their plans to implement these changes and announced that Finchley Road southbound is next.

Automatic train operation in depots

AUTOMATIC TRAIN OPERATION (ATO) IN DEPOTS AND SIDINGS - LONDON UNDERGROUND (LUL/14/10)

I write to inform branches that your Lead Officer submitted a report on discussions between your Representatives and London Underground regarding a proposed introduction of Automatic Train Operation (ATO) in depots and sidings. Despite the efforts that have been made to engage the company over unsafe work practises, London Underground are seeking to impose ATO in a way which is clearly unsafe. A referral to ACAS has been sought and London Underground have failed to respond to our request.
