Executive decision on Picc Line Workshop staff action

We salute the determination of our Members in the rock solid ballot turnout and yes vote in their resolve to halt the attempted introduction of a two-tier work force in the LU Piccadilly Line Fleet area; with all the detriments encapsulated for our present members; and to seek proper ongoing employment for future members joining the company.

We also note the report from our Lead Officer and that some movement was secured at yesterday’s Director level meeting; but not enough in terms of our Members aspirations.

Accordingly, we instruct affected Members to take actions short of a strike from 07:30 on Tuesday 25 th July 2017 for which they were balloted comprising:

  • OVERTIME BAN
  • MEMBERS NOT TO CARRY OUT ROLES BEYOND THEIR SUBSTANTIVE POSITIONS AND LOCATIONS
  • MEMBERS NOT TO DEVIATE FROM CURRENT VALID APPROVED WORK INSTRUCTION DOCUMENTS
  • MEMBERS NOT TO DEVIATE FROM CURRENT VALID APPROVED RISK ASSESSMENTS
  • MEMBERS NOT TO DEVIATE FROM LATEST ISSUE OF TUBE LINES SUPPLEMENT TO THE RULE BOOK
  • MEMBERS NOT TO WORK ONSITE UNLESS A FIRST AIDER IS ON DUTY
  • MEMBERS NOT TO PERFORM COACHING AND/OR BUDDY DUTIES

The live mandate for Strike Action will be considered pending further talks with the company, consultation with our Reps and report from the Lead Officer.

Members to be advised by a postal letter email and text.

LU Fleet Branch and the London Transport Regional Council to be advised.
