District Centre Cover Group dispute arises over uncovered shifts

Subject: DUTIES/SHIFT COVERAGE, DISTRICT CENTRE GROUP – LONDON UNDERGROUND

That we note the resolution from our Piccadilly and District West Branch; that the stresses and strains put on members in the District Centre Cover Group caused
by a lack of staff leading to shifts being left uncovered.

Despite our demands that the whole of the BNS is covered, vacancies remain unfilled, the duties covered only up to minimum numbers. Sats are left uncovered, machines left un-serviced, crowd control is impossible and members are left alone in a very busy gate line exacerbated by frequent asset breakdowns.

We therefore instruct the General Secretary to immediately advise the company we are in dispute, complete a matrix of members ballot all District Centre Cover
Group Station Staff members (CSM’s, CSS’s, CSA1’s & CSA’2s) for Strike Action and Actions Short of a Strike:

  • Strike Action
  • Not to work overtime
  • Not to work rest days
  • Not to familiarise people who don’t normally work on those stations

Members to be advised by email and text.

Piccadilly and District West Branch and the London Transport Regional Council to be advised.
