BOXING DAY WORKING – LONDON UNDERGROUND (ASSET OPERATIONS)

Our Ref: LUL/7/2

18th December 2017

Dear Colleagues,

BOXING DAY WORKING – LONDON UNDERGROUND (ASSET OPERATIONS)

Further to previous correspondence regarding the above the ballot for strike action concluded but regrettably failed to meet the new legal thresholds. However, as a result of the dispute situation, London Underground recognised the difference in working arrangements around the festive season and as a one-off arrangement, will apply the former AP JNP arrangements across the whole Asset Operations team for those working over the Christmas period who are not already undertaking works that attract additional payments.

Your Lead Officer submitted a report and having discussed the matter with our Reps, noted that LUL has made substantial moves towards resolving this dispute. Also that discussions regarding future staffing levels at Christmas, with a view to minimising and re-planning maintenance requirements and the use of cover turn shifts should take place with the Company.  

Yours sincerely
 
Mick Cash
General Secretary
