AUTOMATIC TRAIN OPERATION TRAINING, SMA3, DISTRICT LINE – LONDON UNDERGROUND
You and your colleagues delivered a tremendous vote to take action short of a strike. You have made your views crystal clear to management and for that you and your reps are to be congratulated on achieving another powerful vote in relation to our ongoing dispute.
RMT has done everything possible to negotiate an acceptable way forward with the employer but London Underground has failed to address our members’ concerns.
The union’s National Executive Committee has again considered the matter and believes that industrial action is necessary to force management to resolve these issues urgently.
You are therefore instructed to take the following action short of a strike:
From 00:01 on Saturday 6th March 2021, until further notice, you are instructed to refuse to drive any train in automatic running through the SMA3 area without having received in-cab training in line with previous practice
This action is intended to be continuous.
Your vote shows that you and your colleagues are absolutely determined to seek safe working practises in this dispute and I am sure this will be displayed by your full support for this industrial action.
A message has been sent to management by your vote and now by your actions. It is now time management responded in a meaningful way to ensure the safety of our members.
UNITY IS STRENGTH
SUPPORT YOUR UNION – SUPPORT THE ACTION
