REMOVAL OF DETRAINMENT STAFF, WATERLOO, WATERLOO & CITY LINE
Following the close of the third ballot yesterday, the National Executive Committee has considered this matter and congratulated members on again returning a magnificent yes vote to continue to take industrial action. The instruction for all Train Operator 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 will therefore continue uninterrupted (from 00:01 hours on Wednesday 31st July 2019) until further notice.
While we remain available for talks to resolve this dispute, we cannot accept the Company’s dangerous cost-cutting plans to remove detrainment staff from the Waterloo and City Line at Waterloo Station and I am sure you will all stand by this industrial action to protect your safety and that of your passengers.
SUPPORT THE ACTION – STAND FIRM TOGETHER
I will keep you advised of all further developments.
