Duties/Shift Coverage, Bakerloo South Group London Underground

Our Ref: LUL/14/5

12th December 2018

Dear Colleague,

Duties/Shift Coverage, Bakerloo South Group London Underground

Following yesterday’s ballot result, all Bakerloo South Group members are congratulated for returning a magnificent result in favour of taking industrial action over the Company’s failure to ensure sufficient shift coverage in line with previous commitments given. This position creates undue stress on you and your colleagues and puts all members and the travelling public at increased risk.

The National Executive Committee has now considered this matter and taken the decision to instruct all CSA, CSS and CSM members in Charing Cross, Elephant & Castle, Oxford Circus and Piccadilly Circus Areas to take strike action by NOT BOOKING ON FOR ANY SHIFTS THAT COMMENCE BETWEEN:-

• 05:00 hours and 23:01 hours on Wednesday 26th December 2018.

• 22:29 hours on Sunday 13th January and 22:29 hours on Monday 14th January 2019

Also to take industrial action by REFUSING TO FAMILIARISE ANYONE WHO WOULD NOT NORMALLY WORK AT YOUR STATION e.g. Ambassadors, from 23:02 hours on Wednesday 26th December 2018 until further notice (this action is suspended for the duration of the strike from 22:29 Sunday 13th to 22:29 Monday 14th January 2019, but will commence again immediately after the strike ends).


As always, we remain available for talks with the Company and I will keep you advised of all further developments.

Yours sincerely

Mick Cash
General Secretary
