Cops spied on station workers carrying out frontline duties

TUBE UNION RMT today reacted with astonishment after revelations that the British Transport Police (BTP) have been carrying out covert spying operations on London Underground (LUL) front line staff.

Even more astonishing is the revelations that these BTP officers engaged in fare evasion including double gating and other acts of anti-social behaviour to “gauge staff reaction”. Double gating is where a fare-dodger slips through the gate behind a fare-payer. All this was done in real time, live, when the station – Piccadilly Circus – was fully open to the public .

Station staff to be balloted in detainment dispute

That we note the resolution from our Jubilee South Branch and applaud their concern over this unsafe practice which is detrimental to our members and the travelling public.

Therefore, we instruct the General Secretary to ballot all CSA1 staff members at Waterloo for action short of strike that:

They will not give the right to, indicate to or in any other way give assistance to any Waterloo & City Line Train Operators to proceed into the depot or siding, that has not first been physically detrained.

Members to be advised by email and text.
