Bakerloo News July - August Edition

Bakerloo News is the newsletter for members of the RMT Bakerloo branch. In this edition:

Strike again on 5-6 August!
Our strike on 8-9 July shut down the entire Tube network, but management isn’t budging. That’s why RMT, Aslef, TSSA, and Unite have called another strike for 5-6 August. RMT Bakerloo mounted three successful, well-supported picket lines on 8-9 July, at Queen’s Park, Oxford Circus, and Elephant and Castle, along with comrades from Aslef and TSSA.

Overtime Ban

SUPPORT THE OVERTIME BAN

The RMT has instructed all of it’s members not to do overtime during this dispute.

The ballot for action short of a strike, which is exactly what this is, came back unanimous. If LU don’t have enough members of staff to open a station safely, then the station must close. Perhaps they should employ enough staff so this doesn’t happen!

One day after our recent strike action, two stations couldn’t open up in the morning because of staff shortage!

Piccadilly Reps Report July 2015

Well I am pleased to say that my area is fantastically strong. We REPs have recruited every single new person to the Piccadilly Circus group. Fixed term as well. 12 members in the last month.

Amazing, it's really easy for you to use your iPad to recruit. Giving someone a paper membership application is so last year. I do it on my personal iPad. Takes 5 minutes.
