Solid YES vote for continued Waterloo & City Line industrial action

Subject: REMOVAL OF DETRAINMENT STAFF, WATERLOO, WATERLOO & CITY LINE – LONDON UNDERGROUND

We congratulate our members on the increased re-ballot turnout and magnificent yes vote which clearly demonstrates once again their deep concerns over the imposition of this unsafe practice.

We note that the ballot result for action short of strike is as follows:-

Number of members balloted: 68

Total votes cast 57 (83.8%)

Number voting “Yes” 57 (100%)

Number voting “No” 0

Spoilt Papers 0

The 40% and 50% thresholds were both met.

Accordingly, We instruct all affected members to continue to refuse to enter sidings to reverse until the train has been physically checked and doors closed on porter buttons and from 00:01 on 14th February 2019 until notified otherwise.

We remain open for talks with the company.

Members to be advised by email and text.

Central Line East Branch and the London Transport Regional Council to be advised.
