LUL "Seeking A Pretext For Cutting Staff, Regardless Of...Safety" On Jubilee RMT Believe

We note the resolution from our Jubilee South branch. We share its concern at London Underground management’s attempts to impose a less safe procedure for dealing with defective Platform Edge Doors. Once again, the company appears to be seeking a pretext for cutting staff, regardless of the consequences for passenger safety.

We instruct the lead officer to convene a meeting with the relevant representatives from all the grades mentioned in the resolution to draw up a proposed plan for action over this issue. This plan is to be placed in front of us. We further instruct the lead officer to ensure that this matter is pursued vigorously through the Machinery of Negotiation, and to liaise with the other London Underground trade unions on this matter.

We instruct the General Secretary to ascertain if and when London Underground Ltd intends to pursue further trials of its proposed procedure, and to place this information in front of us.

London Transport Regional Council, branches and Jubilee line representatives to be advised.
