Further to my previous Circular (IR/340/14, 19th December 2015), members will recall that the industrial action was suspended to allow for further discussions to take place and to explore a way forward that would meet our claim for Service Controller’s to be paid the SCL1 for the job.

Central Line Suspended As Engineers Train Derails

Transfer Policy – London Underground

Further to my previous Circular (IR/332/14, 15th December 2014), Central Line East Branch and Camden 3 Branch submitted correspondence over the Company’s refusal to honour its transfer procedure for station staff. It is alleged that the Company is refusing to fill vacancies and instead are covering duties with new-recruit staff on fixed-term contracts on an over-establishment basis.

The Lead Officer has written to the Company regarding this matter and it is listed on the agenda for the next Stations Functional Council meeting. I will keep you informed of all further developments.
