Breakdown in Industrial Relations- Bakerloo


Dear drivers:

It is with regret that I have to inform you that despite attempts by the RMT to talk to Bakerloo management regarding our outstanding grievances around the imposition of WTT39 and the issue of across the board 26 week warnings issued at LDIs, we are no further forward.

We requested an emergency meeting with management to discuss these issues almost two weeks ago. This was turned down on the basis that they could see no problem.

Our concerns remain:

Emergency Bakerloo Branch Meeting

Emergency Bakerloo Branch Meeting

Management have refused our request for an emergency meeting to discuss:
-The lack of consultation over changes to duties included in WTT39
-The issuing of maximum 26 week warning at almost all attendance LDIs

We will be meeting to get as many of your views as possible and discuss what we do next.

The meeting will be at 1400hrs on Friday 22nd November at the Clachan pub, Kingly Street.

Five minutes walk from Oxford Circus station.

Unity is Strength

Bakerloo Branch AGM '13

Bakerloo Branch Annual General Meeting

Monday the 2nd of December.

The AGM will take place at the Red Lion, Kingly Street, London, W1B 5PR (nearest tube Oxford Circus) starting at 1600 and will immediately be followed by a social with our General Secretary Bob Crow due to attend.

RMT Ready To Take Industrial Action Over Flash & Dash

We note the legal advice on file. We therefore intend to reinstate our suspended industrial action should London Underground Ltd attempt to again impose a detrainment procedure that does not involve physical checking that trains are empty by staff on the platform.

We instruct the General Secretary to obtain an update on this issue, including the likely timescales involved, and to seek co-ordination with ASLEF.

Reports and developments are to be placed in front of us. London Transport Regional Council and branches to be advised.

RMT Prepare For Possible Industrial Action Over Flash & Dash Detrainments

We note the report from our Regional Organiser and the correspondence from London Underground Ltd. Although the experience of the last two years has proved beyond any doubt that detrainment is only safe and effective when carried out by staff on the platform, the company appears to be preparing to make a fresh attempt to withdraw these staff. It seems again to be attempting to use some technical devices as a pretext to return to the ‘flash and dash’ procedure, which endangers passengers and is held in contempt by our members.

Wembley Central group - vacancy for a H&S rep


There is currently a vacancy for a health and safety rep on the Wembley Central Group.

The Bakerloo Branch will be looking to run an election for this vital position at the next Branch meeting, on the 2nd of September, 16.00, Red Lion PH, Kingly Street, London (nearest tube station, Oxford Circus)

If you are interested in standing for this position then please contact either the Branch Secretary or the Branch Chair prior to the meeting.




There have been a few recently reported incidents of mosquito type insects in Bakerloo driver’s cabs. On a couple of occasion this has resulted in drivers being bitten.

I know that we might all like to trivialise this matter but in some cases these bites can be very sore and in some extreme case very dangerous.
