Every Job Matters – Defending Jobs on London Underground

TO ALL LONDON UNDERGROUND STATION STAFF MEMBERS

Our Ref: LUL/14/5

TO ALL LONDON UNDERGROUND STATION STAFF MEMBERS

Dear Colleagues,

Every Job Matters – Defending Jobs on London Underground

Members are congratulated for taking part in the significant strike action on Wednesday 8th and Thursday 9th July involving all 4 trade unions, which saw every station closed and meant that not a single London Underground train ran on Thursday 9th July. I urge you all to continue this fight against the decimation of jobs and conditions on London Underground. There is currently a stalemate situation as LUL have said we can have input but there are simply not enough people left in the mix after the unacceptable job losses to resolve the issues over unacceptable displacements, unacceptable rosters and unacceptable changes to your terms and conditions.

As a result, the decision has been taken to call on you and your colleagues to take part in the further industrial action detailed below. All Station Grades members are instructed not to book on for any shifts that commence between:-

•    18:30 hours on Wednesday 5th August and 18:29 hours on Thursday 6th August 2015

The previous instruction NOT TO WORK ANY OVERTIME until further notice also remains in place and is fully supported by members, resulting in a number of occasions where staff availability to run services is severely impacted. The Company should now recognise the clear need for all Stations to be properly staffed at all times, rather than imposing massive cuts which will leave the network dangerously understaffed.

SUPPORT THE ACTION
STAND FIRM TOGETHER UNITY IS STRENGTH

As always, your Union is available for talks aimed at resolving this dispute and at the time of writing, your RMT negotiating team is attending further discussions at ACAS. I will of course keep you advised of all further developments.

Yours sincerely
 
Mick Cash
General Secretary
