  1. The Victoria Line Management are twisting original agreements to leave RMT members being displaced from Osborne House & Coburg Street.
  2. Management still fail to confirm they will not reduce Jubilee Neasden SCC numbers after TBTC settles in and after the Olympics.
  3. Management after having accepted that SO3 rate of pay should be for all staff in 2 cabins are still dragging their feet paying up.
  4. A number of ex apprentices are still on rolling secondments in signal cabins and management still refuse to take back one apprentice they have thrown on stations. Management claim they have resolved this
    but have still not offered permanent contracts to all members of staff.
  5. Management are still not filling vacancies across service control despite protest from the union.. Stratford Market Depot, Baker St, Harrow, Rayners Lane, Rickmansworth, Met Reserve to name a few.
