Industrial action called in 'Train Prep' dispute

Subject: EXTENDED TRAIN PREPARATION SCHEDULE – LONDON UNDERGROUND

That we note the decision of the LU Fleet Branch meeting and their concerns around both training candidates and trainers being forced to undertake training to do the before; resulting in our loyal members refusing to break a strike and being locked out of work without any pay by the company.
