Hounslow West Tube Needs A Ticket Office

RMT Piccadilly and District West Branch and 'Hands Off London Transport' will be demonstrating and leafleting outside of Hounslow West station on Wednesday morning from 7 to 9 am.

London underground wants to close all ticket offices and cut around 850 jobs in a move which will see tube services reduced especially for those who need assistance most, and yet more relatively decent jobs lost in London.

Please join us as we send a message to London Underground bosses and Tory mayor Boris Johnson that we don't want austerity to destroy the tube.

Dispute On Piccadilly Line Over Cross Line Working

There is a flyer attached to this post, please distribute it amongst colleagues.

Over the last festive period Piccadilly trains ran a service down to Ealing Broadway. This was on the understanding from management it was one off and to help with the engineering works.

Why management are doing this
Management have produced the Xmas duties for this year and, again, it shows duties going to Ealing Broadway. Our union believes this is a management ploy to establish the principle of cross-line working.

No genuine reason

London Underground Document Predicts Driverless Trains On Pic From 2022

The RMT has seen a London Underground document which states trains 'with or without drivers' could be introduced on the Piccadilly Line from 2022 - just eight years away. The document, which has been released as an information pack for managers to pass on to workers, also explains that Platform Edge Doors will need to be installed across the line and that preparation work for this could begin from 2016.
