How Job Cuts Plan Affects Us

London Underground's plans for slashing station staffing - leaked last week by RMT - will directly affect Stratford no.1 branch station staff in two major ways. Firstly, virtually all our ticket offices will close, with shedloads of jobs lost. Secondly, Barkingside group will be disbanded and its stations reallocated to Leyton and Buckhurst Hill groups. So some reserve staff's jobs will go altogether, the remaining reserves on all three of these groups will have to work at many more stations than they currently do, and hard-pressed admin staff will be less able to give you that day off or that duty change that you want.

This will also impact negatively on other grades, with fewer station staff around to help you with that PEA, service disruption, one-under, etc.
