REMOVAL OF DETRAINMENT STAFF, WATERLOO, WATERLOO & CITY LINE – LONDON UNDERGROUND
You produced a magnificent 100% YES vote in the recent ballot to take industrial action. I am therefore reminding you further to my email and letter of 16th August 2018 of the scheduled action.
The National Executive Committee instructs all Train Operators and Instructor Operator members at Leytonstone Traincrew Depot not to enter the sidings to reverse until the train has been physically checked and doors closed on porter buttons from 00.01 hours on Sunday 9th September 2018 until further notice.
The company knows that your union has made itself available for talks to resolve this dispute, but, as it stands, this action goes ahead as we cannot allow the company to carry out its dangerous cost-cutting plan to remove detrainment staff from Waterloo Station.
SUPPORT THE ACTION – SUPPORT YOUR UNION
I have incidentally sent all members a hard copy in the post of the original instructions of 16th August.
