Picc strike action suspended


That we note the report from the Lead Officer regarding last Friday’s members and reps meeting; where the view was that we should suspend the strike action for tomorrow due to progress made at ACAS, with the company now seemingly abiding by agreements and implementing them.

The members meeting made the point vigorously that the Negotiations Team, Lead Officer, branches, reps and NEC must proceed with the utmost vigilance regarding these talks; as our members will NOT be messed around with by management again!

Accordingly, we instruct the General Secretary to advise the company immediately that the notified strike action beginning 12:00hrs on Wednesday 7th October 2018 is suspended; and to instruct our members to work normally.

We congratulate our members on the magnificent strike action they took at the end of September; which brought the company back into line and demonstrated to management their complete resolve to have the unacceptable situation on the Piccadilly Line put right.

We salute ALL tube drivers who stood by our members during the strike days.

Members to be advised immediately by email and text.

Piccadilly & District West and Finsbury Park Branches plus the London Transport Regional Council to be advised.
