Finsbury Park Branch Newsletter - Every Job Matters

Dear Finsbury Park Branch Member,

As you are no doubt aware LUL has announced a massive attack on the jobs and conditions of mainly station based grades.

This is being done due to the massive budget cuts announced by Central government to the TfL budget mainly due to the actions of a handful of people in the banking sector some years ago.

They are asking us to pay through our jobs and conditions for their mistakes and this is not acceptable.

SFC News to download - Roving Supervisors and Ticket Office Cuts

RMT Demands
24/7 Supervisor on Every Station
No Ticket Office Closures

LU Explains how Roving Supervisors will respond to incidents during service breakdowns: See picture.

The issue of mobile Supervisors on the Wembley Central and Hammersmith (at Kew & Gunnersbury) groups moved to ACAS for the most recent talks.
LU has refused to implement the temporary arrangements agreed after a strike in 2008 and has tried to impose a model of mobile supervision.

LU Still Refuses to Discuss Ticket Office Closures

Following the publication, in the Evening Standard, of a plan to close every ticket office on the tube we wrote to the COO demanding an urgent meeting of the stations & revenue functional council.
Having refused to discuss ticket office closure plans at previous meetings we were a little surprised when an ad-hoc meeting was arranged for 5th Sept.
We needn’t have been. Management came to the meeting and told us, again, that they have no plans at this stage and therefore cannot discuss the matter!
