Piccadilly strike back on as bosses renege on agreements

That we note the report on file from the Lead Officer; that despite our Union going beyond what we were comfortable with to suspend at extremely short notice the strike action for 11th to the 14th July 2018 to accept the detailed offer on the table from the company, the company are reneging on most of the agreed items in the settlement.

Our union members are not to be treated in either the manner which has led to this dispute in the first place nor to be cynically turned over when agreements made in trust and good faith by their reps are disregarded by management.

All Central Line drivers to be balloted for strike in defense of brother Bailey

We congratulate both our Central Line branches for standing firm behind our Brother Paul Bailey, and resisting the stitch up being perpetrated against him by the company who have now upheld his dismissal on appeal and refused to grant the union a Directors Review.

This travesty calls into question the integrity of the entire drugs and alcohol policy and testing regime.

We instruct the General Secretary to immediately ballot our Driver Operators and Operator Instructors at all depots on the Central Line for Strike Action.

Members to be advised by email and text.

Meeting called over Met Line withdrawal of canteen facilities

That we note the report from our Lead Officer and the correspondence from the company declining to address our concerns and requirements in any way whatsoever.
