Extended Train Preparation Schedule – London Underground

Our Ref: LUL/14/10

18th April 2019

Dear Colleague,

Extended Train Preparation Schedule – London Underground

Further to my letter dated 2nd April, members are congratulated for delivering a solid ballot result in favour of taking industrial action to demonstrate your resolve to fight against the Company’s dangerous proposals to extend the train preparation schedules beyond all recognition.

The National Executive Committee has now considered this matter and taken the decision to call on all Fleet members to take part in the following industrial action short of a strike from 00:01 hours on Thursday 2nd May 2019 until further notice:

• Refuse training for tasks that are not part of your substantive role

• Refuse training other staff to do tasks that are not part of their substantive role

The Company has been advised that you will all be taking part in this action and any attempt by management to coerce or bully you into breaking the above action should be immediately report to your RMT Reps.

The NEC will consider this matter again in the coming weeks and if this matter remains unresolved, it is likely further action including strike action will be called.


I will of course keep you advised of all further developments.

Yours sincerely

Mick Cash
General Secretary
