M Door Dispute: Management Will Not Impose New Rule

REAR M DOOR ALARM ACTIVATED ON JUBILEE LINE

LUL recently implemented a change to the Rule for dealing with a rear M door alarm activation on the Jubilee line. Previous to this change a Train Operator was asked to contact the Controller and then go back to investigate the activation. The Rule change is that the Train Operator would now contact the Controller, get authority to proceed in Restricted Manual and continue to next station.

M Door Dispute Discussions Continue

Comrades

We met with management to discuss the Jubilee Line M Door issue, and a host of other issues at a recent Tier 2A meeting.

The upshot is, we are still no nearer a resolution on this issue. We will need another meeting to discuss the issue further, but in the meantime, management have a agreed not to ask any driver to carry on to the next station to check should they receive an M Door activated alarm. Drivers will be allowed to go back and check, even between stations.

Fantastic support for strike!

Solidarity was shown by RMT Reps/Members and our sister unions on picket lines throughout the network this morning, as London Underground was brought to a standstill. Fantastic support was also received from members of the passing public. Please keep up the good work this afternoon!
