Local Investigation Report into Canning Town Evacuation Slams Fit for the Future

A company report into an evacuation that went out of control at Canning Town has blamed inadequate staffing levels and the closure of control rooms.

RMT is calling for the one year review of Fit for the Future to be brought forward. We need more staff now. We need control rooms re-opened.

RMT Head Office has seen a draft Local Investigatory Report into a PTI incident and station evacuation at Canning Town in May of this year.

“With the Control Room at Canning Town being unstaffed there was no central base for communications to flow in and out of.”

“Station classification lead to low numbers of staff being present to manage an emergency.”

Don't Let your Managers Break the Framework

We're hearing of more and more cases of rest days being changed in breach of the framework agreement and HGW being denied where it is due.

A poster to download and display on union notice boards will be available soon showing the web address for the area.
