VIOLENCE AT WORK – LONDON UNDERGROUND
Following the ballot result earlier today, members are congratulated for delivering a solid result in favour of taking industrial action to ensure you and your colleagues can take action to work safely. There has recently been a spate of violent incidents in the District East area and this is having an unacceptable impact on affected station staff members.
The National Executive Committee has considered this matter and taken the decision to call on all District East Cover Group (East Ham Area & Hornchurch Area) CSA, CSS and CSM members to take industrial action by working from within a place of safety when lone-working and not to detrain alone or attend incidents on trains alone from 00:01 hours on Friday 27th September 2019, until further notice.
SUPPORT THE ACTION – UNITY IS STRENGTH
I will also be arranging to meet your Reps and the LUL Stations & Trains Safety Council to consider this issue across the LU network and as always, RMT remains available for talks with the Company to resolve this dispute. I will keep you advised of all further developments.
