TO ALL RMT TEST TRAIN OPERATORS
INTRODUCTION OF DRIVERLESS TRAINS Ė TEST TRAIN UNIT- LONDON UNDERGROUND
I write to advise you that following the recent ballot in favour of taking industrial action over London Undergroundís plans to test driverless trains, the General Grades Committee has decided the call the following industrial action:-
Your unionís position is very clear; we believe every train must have a driver to ensure the safe and effective running of the Underground. We firmly believe that plans to scrap drivers or reduce their driving duties are risking safety, services and jobs, and are motivated by saving money and undermining trade unionism.
Therefore I urge members to fully support this action, to show management that we will not accept any plans they have to prepare for the introduction of driverless trains.
SUPPORT THE ACTION
