Ballot arranged over plans to cut detrainment staff

Subject: REMOVAL OF DETRAINMENT STAFF, WATERLOO, WATERLOO & CITY LINE – LONDON UNDERGROUND

We note the resolution from our Central Line East Branch; and that this cost cutting exercise by the company is putting passengers lives at risk and our members safety at risk.

We instruct the General Secretary to advise the company a dispute now exists between our respective organisations and to arrange a ballot for action short of a strike for all Leytonstone Depot Train Operators and Operator Instructors but excluding Night Tube Drivers.

The industrial action short of a strike will be in the form of refusing to enter the sidings to reverse until the train has been physically checked and doors closed on
porter buttons as per existing arrangements.

Members to be advised by email and text.

Central Line East and Central Line West branches and the London Transport Regional Council to be advised.
