DISPLACEMENT, TRAIN OPERATORS, CENTRAL LINE – LONDON UNDERGROUND

Our Ref: LUL/16/4

18th January 2017

Dear Colleague,

DISPLACEMENT, TRAIN OPERATORS, CENTRAL LINE – LONDON UNDERGROUND

Following the recent successful ballot result strongly in favour of taking strike action and action short of a strike against the forced displacement of Central Line Train Operators, and having consulted with your RMT Central Line East Branch, the National Executive Committee has taken the decision to call on all affected members at Hainault, Leytonstone and Loughton Traincrew Depots NOT TO BOOK ON for any shifts that commence between:-

•    21:00 hours on Wednesday 25th January 2017 and 20:59 hours on Thursday 26th January 2017.

RMT met with the Company on 3rd and 13th January in an effort to reach an acceptable solution to this dispute but despite the best efforts of your negotiating team, LUL has now written to us stating that it will be proceeding with the displacements. I therefore urge you all to stand firm together during the above strike action to demand that management return to talks and halt the forced and unacceptable displacements until agreement is reached.

SUPPORT THE ACTION – UNITY IS STRENGTH

I will keep you advised of all further developments.

Yours sincerely
 
Mick Cash
General Secretary
