DISMISSAL, P. BAILEY – LONDON UNDERGROUND
Further to previous correspondence and the rock solid strike action taken by all Central Line Driver members on Wednesday 7th November this matter has been considered by the National Executive Committee, which applauds your resolve and determination to continue fighting the scandalous sacking of Bro. Bailey for NOT failing a drugs and alcohol test. Even the company have now reluctantly admitted the confusion surrounding this case is so concerning they will be reviewing the relevant processes and procedures.
The only rational and just course of action is the reinstatement of Bro. Paul Bailey and the NEC has taken the decision to call on all Central Line Train Operators and Instructor Operators to take strike action by not booking on for any shifts that commence between:-
• 20:00 hours on Friday 21st December and 02:00 hours on Saturday 22nd December 2018
• 04:00 hours and 20:00 hours on Saturday 22nd December 2018
A meeting of all LUL Train Operator Industrial Reps with the NEC, Lead Officer and Senior Assistant General Secretary is scheduled to take place on Thursday 29th November to discuss escalating this dispute and I will of course keep you advised of all further developments.
STAND FIRM TOGETHER – SUPPORT THE STRIKE
UNITY IS STRENGTH
