Piccadilly Line drivers could be balloted if important training isn't reinstated

We note the resolution from our Piccadilly & District West Branch and the sentiments within; and we are completely opposed to the withdrawal of practical training of the very dangerous reversing move on the east bound platform at Kings Cross (reversing east to west), for Piccadilly Line Train Operators.

This exceptionally difficult move has been withdrawn from training purely to save money and it will put the travelling public in danger and put train operators jobs at risk.

We General Secretary to arrange a consultation meeting between the Regional Organiser and senior officials from both Piccadilly & District West and Finsbury Park branches and convene a meeting between the Regional Organiser and Brian Woodhead JNP Director and get this very important reversing move back in training on the Piccadilly Line.

Further, if this fails to resolve the issue; we instruct the General Secretary to ballot all RMT Train Operators and Instructor Operators on the Piccadilly Line for action short of strike with particular reference to not performing the Kings Cross east to west move until it is practically back in training and every train operator has performed the move at least twice in training.

Members to be advised by email and text.

Relevant Branches and the London Transport Regional Council to be advised.
