DISPLACEMENT, TRAIN OPERATORS – CENTRAL LINE – LONDON UNDERGROUND

Our Ref LUL/16/4

16th December 2016

TO ALL TRAIN OPERATORS AND INSTRUCTOR OPERATORS AT LEYTONSTONE, HAINAULT AND LOUGHTON

MEMBERS TO BE BALLOTED

Dear Colleagues

DISPLACEMENT, TRAIN OPERATORS – CENTRAL LINE – LONDON UNDERGROUND

As you may be aware, LUL has decided to bring forward its plans to displace 12 Train Operators at the east end of the Central Line to early in the New Year. The affected members would be sent not just to other depots on the Central line but other depots across the Network and further afield.  We have serious concerns over the effect this will have to members’ work/life balance as it could see a two hour a day increase in traveling time to and from work.  This is in total breach of the pay and night tube settlement where it was promised that there would be minimum disruption to train operators.

The National Executive has considered the matter and has instructed me to ballot all Train Operators and Instructor Operators at Leytonstone, Hainault and Loughton for Strike Action and Industrial Action Short of a Strike. Ballot papers will be sent out to members First Class from Friday 23rd December 2016 with a closing date of First Post Thursday 12th January 2017.

If any member doesn’t receive their ballot papers by Thursday 5th January 2017 please contact the National Helpline on 0800 376 3706

VOTE YES FOR ACTION
UNITY IS STRENGTH

Yours sincerely
 
Mick Cash
General Secretary
