  • Local reps have negotiated a pool operators’ rest day roster to be introduced in early October.
  • Local management had been denying first aiders the chance to update / refresh their certificates. Following discussions, local reps have now negotiated a u-turn by management; first aiders will now be given the opportunity to keep their first aid skills up to date.

Piccadilly Line Dust Up

From 'RMT On The Trains' newsletter, August 2008

Senior RMT Officers and Piccadilly Line Trains reps met with Management a few weeks ago to demand an end to intimidation and for LUL to keep to their agreed policies on attendance and discipline. One of the key issues was that Instead of looking at each attendance case properly, Management started to dish out the maximum warnings on every occasion. We threatened to pack up on the Picc if this continued. A satisfactory agreement was reached and this will be reviewed in the near future.
