BREAKDOWN IN INDUSTRIAL RELATIONS, TRAIN OPERATORS
PICCADILLY LINE – LONDON UNDERGROUND
Further to my letter of 11th July when the previous strike action dates were suspended you will recall that further work was necessary towards the implementation of the promises that the Company gave in the Offer of Agreement.
We were of course hopeful that these talks would go smoothly and the dispute would be fully resolved but regrettably, management are up to their old tricks again and have not come good on the assurances related to this dispute concerning Driver Numbers; Pressure on Drivers from Service Control Management; Release of Reps for TU Duties and Application of the Attendance and Disciplinary Policies.
The National Executive Committee has therefore considered this matter again and taken the decision to call on you and your colleagues to take strike action by not booking on for any shifts that commence between:-
• 12:00 hours on Wednesday 26th September 2018 and 12:00 hours on Friday 28th September 2018
• 20:30 hours on Friday 28th September 2018 and 01:30 hours on Saturday 29th September 2018
It is unacceptable for you and your colleagues to be treated in the same manner which led to this dispute in the first place and for agreements made in trust and good faith by your Reps to be totally disregarded by management. I will keep you advised of all further developments.
STAND FIRM TOGETHER – SUPPORT THE STRIKE
UNITY IS STRENGTH
