Say no to overtime - support the overtime ban - 0001hrs 23November 2016

 

This matter has been considered by the National Executive Committee, which has taken the decision to call action and instruct ALL LUL STATION & REVENUE members NOT TO WORK ANY OVERTIME OR REST DAYS from 00:01 hours on Wednesday 23rd November 2016 until further notice.

 

I urge all members to support this action which will clearly demonstrate the failure of the Fit for the Future – Stations programme. The impact of these cuts is so severe that it is even affecting the health of members and safety implications, such as the recent incidents at Canning Town and North Greenwich, will only continue to get worse.

 

RMT has informed London Underground that the only way to resolve these issues is to have enough fully-qualified staff on all stations at all times, without having to rely on overtime and rest day working and to reverse the ticket office closure programme. A meeting of RMT Reps will also be taking place to discuss possible further industrial action and I will keep you advised of all further developments.
