News, reports and information for RMT members who work for London Underground Ltd

Tube stations left unstaffed for 7,500 hours in 2018

The RMT has submitted a Freedom of Information request that has revealed that stations were left unstaffed on at least 863 occasions last year, totalling 7490 hours.

This comes in spite of London Underground's promise following the much hated 'Fit for the Future' job cuts plan that all stations would be staffed during traffic hours.

Subject: DISMISSAL, HARVINDER BILLING, CSA2, HEATHROW –LONDON UNDERGROUND

That we note the views of yesterday’s reps meeting regarding the dismissal by the company of Bro Harvinder for allegedly not carrying out procedure around ticket office accounting, when the cash handling devices are riven with faults; and resulting discrepancies in accounting are rife as a result but that no adequate training exists for addressing these instances.

That we note the decision of Yesterday’s reps meeting regarding the appalling treatment by the company of sister Sophie Kyei-Donokoh, who after being abused by
