Honour your agreements

Following last years dispute and supposed resolution over the treatment and working conditions of our colleagues on the Wembley Central group we are still no closer to getting what was agreed. Management have dragged their heals over getting the correct grades employed within the group and the agreement on traffic hours supervision has stalled due to LU’s attack on SS licensing. Management are trying to water down the SS grade and create a new supervisor which would be paid less and have less responsibilities, this would have a detrimental effect for those staff going for promotion and safety implications for train staff in emergencies. Your RMT reps have been firmly opposed to any re-grading on the group, which following the dispute LU said would have been totally done away by now. Kevin Bootle who chairs the joint working party previously stated that as they had ‘coped’ without station supervisors over the last year, does LU really need them? It is clear from comments like this that LU are not abiding by the dispute resolution and if anything show utter contempt for the agreements and also highlights the possible future plans for all non section 12 stations on the combine. The RMT believes that the working practices on the Wembley Central group could be seen as LU’s plan for the future of the Tube and it is vital that we stop this and bring to the attention of the wider membership what is going on at Wembley Central.
