Our Ref: LUL/1/8

6th December 2017

Dear Colleague,

TRAIN PREPARATION PAYMENTS, TRANSPLANT MAINTENANCE STAFF
LONDON UNDERGROUND (ex-AP JNP)

Following the superb ballot results earlier today, members are congratulated for returning such as massively strong vote in favour of taking strike action and action short of a strike to demand equal recognition for carrying out safety critical Train Preparation duties.

The National Executive Committee has considered this matter and taken the decision to instruct all Advanced Train Maintainer, Duty Maintenance Manager and Team Leader (Train Maintenance) members to take industrial action as detailed below:

With effect from 00:01 hours on Wednesday 20th December 2017, until further notice, members are instructed:-

•    Not to work any overtime or rest days
•    Not to carry out roles beyond their substantive positions and locations
•    Not to deviate from current valid approved work and safety instruction documents
•    Not to deviate from current valid approved risk assessments
•    Not to deviate from latest issue of Tube Lines supplement to the rule book
•    Not to work onsite unless a first aider is on duty
•    Not to perform coaching and/or buddy duties
•    To take rest breaks within legal/agreed parameters
•    Not to use personal mobile devices for work related use

STAND FIRM TOGETHER – SUPPORT THE ACTION
SUPPORT YOUR UNION

As you are aware, you are also included in the pay parity dispute but for legal reasons, cannot take action for both disputes at the same time. The other grades involved in pay parity are taking the same action as above and I will keep you advised of all further developments.

Yours sincerely
 
Mick Cash
General Secretary
