Occupational ill health 
In the latest round of Fit for Nothing or Transformation as LU prefer to call it Occupational Health have become another victim of the abacus and axe.

Slept well?
TfL has a ‘sleep tool’ which asks a number of questions regarding your sleep patterns and diet and assesses you general health and fatigue levels. The data collected is totally confidential.

RAIB recommend LU improvements
The Rail Accident Investigation Branch (RAIB) has recently published its report into a passenger dragging incident at Notting Hill Gate on the Central line in January this year. 

Provision of drinking water
This issue has been rumbling on for well over a year now. LU used the failed contract with private water provider Eden Springs as a smoke screen to cut the number of chilled water dispensers available to drivers.

Waterloo & City detrainment
Our Leytonstone T-Ops on the Central line were recently balloted over LU’s proposal to remove detrainment staff on the W&C line.
