H&C drivers to be balloted as bosses violate basic human rights

Subject: BREAKDOWN IN INDUSTRIAL RELATIONS, DRIVERS, HAMMERSMITH & CITY LINE – LONDON UNDERGROUND

We note the resolution from our Hammersmith & City Branch regarding the heavy-handed approach of disciplining members for taking personal needs breaks; and that the company is breaching agreements on this reached at ACAS.

This is an intolerable situation to our members and this union and we will not tolerate such a violation of our members human rights, agreements and LU’s own rule book!

Accordingly, we instruct the General Secretary to inform London Underground a dispute exists between our two organisations and to ballot our Train Operator and Instructor Operator members at Edgware Road and Hammersmith Depots for strike action and action short of a strike.

Members to be advised by email and text.

Hammersmith & City Branch and the London Transport Regional Council to be advised.
