Update May 3rd 2019

RMT to request meeting over TOD failure rule change

Subject: LOSS OF TRAIN OPERATOR DISPLAY, TBTC LINES – LONDON UNDERGROUND 

That we note the resolution from our Neasden Branch regarding the unacceptable situation with company changes to the LU Rule Book; resulting in transition based train control stock (TBTC) being kept in service if/when the train operator display (TOD) fails, which will also result in Train Operators having to rely on unqualified and remotely based third parties service decisions whilst they are driving their trains.

Inaccurate recordings on EIRF forms

Subject: INACCURATE RECORDINGS ON ELECTRONIC INCIDENT REPORTING FORMS (EIRF) – LUL

This is totally unacceptable and we instruct the General Secretary to have this matter taken up at the highest level with London Underground.

All operational branches and the London Transport Regional Council to be advised.
