JUSTICE FOR STATION AND REVENUE STAFF – LONDON UNDERGROUND
You and your colleagues delivered a magnificent ballot result in favour of taking industrial action as part of the campaign to defend the role of Revenue Control Inspector and oppose London Underground’s attempts to create a two-tier workforce. The result – an overwhelming 73-5 vote in favour – should have been a clear sign to management that it had to get around the table with your union and come up with an alternative to its quite obviously unacceptable cost-cutting plans. Unfortunately, London Underground has failed to heed the message.
The situation was discussed at a meeting last week at which all RCI representatives recommended taking strike action and the action short of a strike which was specified on the voting paper. Your National Executive Committee endorsed this view and you are therefore instructed not to book on for any shifts which commence between:
00.01 hours and 23.59 hours on Friday 27th March 2020
Additionally, from 00.01 hours on Saturday 28th March 2020 until further notice, you are instructed to:
- refuse to train staff in any unagreed LUL grade or any grade that is not directly employed by London Underground limited to carry out revenue protection roles
- refuse to mentor any unagreed LUL grade or any grade that is not directly employed by London Underground limited to carry out revenue protection roles
- refuse to assist any unagreed LUL grade or any grade that is not directly employed by London Underground limited to carry out revenue protection roles
I have no doubt at all that you and your colleagues will continue to show your support for your union by taking part in the action as set out above. London Underground management cannot be allowed to erode your RCI grade and replace it with the new RCO grade on inferior terms and conditions.
SUPPORT YOUR UNION!
STRIKE TO DEFEND THE RCI GRADE!
