Tube Lines Members take Action To Defend Work-life Balance

I write to advise you that your General Grades Committee has considered the ballot result and has decided to call members to take industrial action over the company’s disgraceful withdrawal of your rest days. We believe it is totally unacceptable for the company to deny you properly rostered quality time off away from work.

With effect from 00.01 hours Tuesday 8th July 2014, until further notice you are instructed:

  • To comply with Health and Safety requirements and take your official meal breaks whilst on duty.

I urge you to support this industrial action which we hope will force management to return to the negotiating table and reverse their removal of rest days.
