Piccadilly Line dispute ACAS talks begin

Dear RMT members

Today myself with RMT Piccadilly line reps and TFC met face to face with the LUL JNP Director, Piccadilly line General Manager and ER team at ACAS.

We were able to lay out in detail all of the issues effecting our members that need fixing on the line. We explained the anger of our members and our determination to get justice

Management have agreed to respond to us in writing early next week.

Accordingly we will attend ACAS next week to consider the LUL postion.

I will be in touch with you all after that.

In solidarity,
