Strike dates named as Bakerloo South group votes for industrial action

Subject: DUTIES/SHIFT COVERAGE, BAKERLOO LINE SOUTH GROUP – LONDON UNDERGROUND

We congratulate our Bakerloo Line Branch and representatives for running a successful campaign to highlight the need to ballot for industrial actions in light of the
companies disregard for their own policies and procedures and creating undue stress on our members; putting them and the travelling public at risk.

That we note that the ballot results are as follows:

The result for strike action is:-

  • Number of members balloted: 142
  • Total votes cast 94 (66.2%)
  • Number voting “Yes” 83 (58.5%)
  • Number voting “No” 11​
  • Spoilt Papers 0

The 50% threshold and the 40% threshold were both met.

The result for action short of strike is as follows:-

  • Number of members balloted: 142
  • Total votes cast 93 (66.2%)
  • Number voting “Yes” 88 (62%)
  • Number voting “No” 5​
  • Spoilt Papers 1

The 50% threshold and the 40% threshold were both met.
We note that all the thresholds for both for strike action and action short of a strike were met.

Accordingly; we instruct all members to take Strike Action by not to booking on for shifts starting between:

  • 05:00 and 23:01 on Wednesday 26 th December 2018.
