Dear Colleague,

BREAKDOWN IN INDUSTRIAL RELATIONS, DRIVERS, HAMMERSMITH & CITY LINE (Edgware Road Traincrew Depot) – LONDON UNDERGROUND

Following the recent ballot result regarding the above where members at Edgware Road Traincrew Depot and Hammersmith Traincrew Depot voted overwhelmingly in favour of taking industrial action in respect of the above dispute, the National Executive Committee has taken the decision to instruct all affected members NOT TO BOOK ON  for any shifts that commence between:-

•    21:30 hours on Thursday 15th September 2016 and 21:29 hours on Friday 16th September 2016.

Since the ballot result, a number of meetings have taken place with the Company at conciliation service ACAS covering the issues at the heart of this dispute including Announcements; Cancellation of Trains; Facilities; Level One Meetings; Attendance at Work Procedure; Standing Down & Suspension; Occupational Health Issues; Management of PNRs and management of Grievances.

However, the talks have not yet led to a resolution of these issues and I urge all members to stand firm together and support the action to demand that these issue are addressed and resolved without further delay.

SUPPORT THE ACTION – UNITY IS STRENGTH

As always, we remain available for further discussions and I will of course keep you advised of all further developments.

Yours sincerely
 
Mick Cash
General Secretary
