Train prep schedule ballot papers have been sent out

Dear Colleagues,

EXTENDED TRAIN PREPARATION SCHEDULE - LONDON UNDERGROUND (formerly Train Preparation Schedule - London Underground) (LUL/14/10)

Further to my previous Circular (IR/97/19, 6th March 2019), the decision was taken to re-commence this ballot and I issued fresh correspondence to advise the Company that a dispute situation exists over its intentions to extend the Fleet train preparation schedules. The Company has failed to engage in any meaningful consultation or negotiation with RMT or provide us with full information on all safety aspects.
