Picc Line dispute ACAS talks

RMT confirms ACAS talks this morning in Piccadilly Line drivers dispute

Tube union RMT confirmed today that it will be attending talks at ACAS this morning in the long-running dispute on the Piccadilly Line over the breakdown of industrial relations and a comprehensive failure by management to deliver on promised improvements following previous rounds of industrial action.

Strike action scheduled to start at lunchtime Wednesday and running on a phased basis through to Saturday remains on.

RMT General Secretary Mick Cash said;

Pic Line negotiators congratulated for achieving 'vast movement from company'

Subject: BREAKDOWN IN INDUSTRIAL RELATIONS, TRAIN OPERATORS, PICCADILLY LINE – LONDON UNDERGROUND
LUL/14/2

We congratulate our negotiations team and Lead Officer on achieving vast movement from the company in all four items of this dispute.

None of this would have been remotely possible without the crushing pressure of the strike mandate and proposed strike dates which our Train Operator Members in both Finsbury Park and Piccadilly & District West branches delivered.

Further to my previous Circular (IR/073/16, 17th March 2016), members took part in solidly supported strike action on Wednesday 23rd and Thursday 24th March which closed down the Piccadilly Line. However, management took the aggressive stance of threatening our members that they would lose wages if they refused to book on at Oakwood Depot and the National Executive Committee took the decision to rescind this instruction.

Tube bosses refuse to address serious issues at heart of dispute and strike goes ahead tonight on Piccadilly Line

 

Tube union RMT  today confirmed that there have been no further talks and 24 hours of strike action goes ahead from nine o’clock tonight by nearly 400 train operators across the Piccadilly Line over a comprehensive breakdown in industrial relations combining a range of issues. No services will be running.

85% voted for strike action with an even larger number voting for action short of a strike.

Piccadilly strike remains on due to 'out of control' management

Dear RMT members,

This afternoon I have received a letter from LUL on the above. After waiting 6 days for any contact.

We made it clear at ACAS last week that our three (with three aslef as well) 6 in total victimised members at Oakwood need to be exonerated before the strike called for tomorrow. They've had at least 6 days from acas and weeks before that as well with all other issues to be resolved.

This has not been offered. An appeal for one member which is a legal entitlement is all that is forthcoming, as well as a meeting for another case and an acas review.
