by Jared Wood, RMT rep, Rickmansworth group
We remain in dispute over the enforced transfer of five CSAs from Rickmansworth group.
RMT’s strike action was extremely well supported. 70% of turns did not book on; 25 members picketed. Several TSSA members and even non-union staff observed the strike.
LUL is picking local disputes with station staff in an attempt to demoralise us by facing these down. At some point they will attempt a major cut in station staff numbers. This must not be allowed to happen.
Once station staff have been ‘dealt with’, LUL will come for drivers. Defending jobs is an all-grades matter.
