This industrial victory is to the credit of our stations members, reps, activists and the Bakerloo Line Branch who have by their steadfastness and solidarity demonstrated their willingness to stand up to the company.

Waterloo & City Line ballot called

Subject: REMOVAL OF DETRAINMENT STAFF, WATERLOO, WATERLOO & CITY LINE – LONDON UNDERGROUND

That we note the current live ballot mandate to protect our members and travelling public from the company’s cavalier approach to detrainment is about to expire due to
the government anti-trades union laws; and that we need to conduct another ballot to assist our members to continue working safely.
