Following a recent 100% ‘YES’ vote in favour of taking further industrial action over a long-running re-grading dispute, RMT’s executive has now considered the way forward and, in line with members’ wishes, has instructed Waterloo and City service control staff to take further strike action by NOT BOOKING ON for any shifts that commence between:-
- 21:00 hours on Monday 28th September 2015 until 23:00 hours on Wednesday 30th September 2015.
The action has been forced on the union as a result of a total and abject failure by LU management to address fundamental issues around re-grading for this key group of staff and the attempt to bulldoze through changes to duties without agreement.
RMT General Secretary Mick Cash said:
“LUL management must be clear by now on our members legitimate and reasonable demand for re-grading. The union has re-iterated that we will not accept an offer which is based on a change in staff duties or which would cause a detriment to other members. Although LUL has declined our request for arbitration at ACAS, they are aware that as always we remain available for talks to resolve the dispute.”
