More Piccadilly Line strike dates announced

Subject: BREAKDOWN IN INDUSTRIAL RELATIONS, TRAIN OPERATORS, PICCADILLY LINE – LONDON UNDERGROUND

That we note that the talks at ACAS have been fraught and the contempt for our members shown by the company and their internal imbalance and inability to address
the issues of this dispute.

We also note the view of members expressed at the joint branch meeting last week;where they voted to put down more strike action.

Tube bosses secret W&C dispute attack plan exposed

That we note the report from our Lead Officer that the company’s secret planned backlash against our members has been exposed.

Upon booking on, the company are planning to doorstep our driver members taking industrial action short of a strike, instructing them to confirm they will carry out the new imposed unsafe detraining process; sending them home without pay if they say they are abiding by their unions instruction to work safely.

This union will NOT tolerate our driver members being intimidated or victimised for taking lawful industrial action.

Station staff to be balloted in detainment dispute

That we note the resolution from our Jubilee South Branch and applaud their concern over this unsafe practice which is detrimental to our members and the travelling public.

Therefore, we instruct the General Secretary to ballot all CSA1 staff members at Waterloo for action short of strike that:

They will not give the right to, indicate to or in any other way give assistance to any Waterloo & City Line Train Operators to proceed into the depot or siding, that has not first been physically detrained.

Piccadilly strike back on as bosses renege on agreements

That we note the report on file from the Lead Officer; that despite our Union going beyond what we were comfortable with to suspend at extremely short notice the strike action for 11th to the 14th July 2018 to accept the detailed offer on the table from the company, the company are reneging on most of the agreed items in the settlement.

Our union members are not to be treated in either the manner which has led to this dispute in the first place nor to be cynically turned over when agreements made in trust and good faith by their reps are disregarded by management.

All Central Line drivers to be balloted for strike in defense of brother Bailey

We congratulate both our Central Line branches for standing firm behind our Brother Paul Bailey, and resisting the stitch up being perpetrated against him by the company who have now upheld his dismissal on appeal and refused to grant the union a Directors Review.

This travesty calls into question the integrity of the entire drugs and alcohol policy and testing regime.

We instruct the General Secretary to immediately ballot our Driver Operators and Operator Instructors at all depots on the Central Line for Strike Action.

Members to be advised by email and text.
