NIght tube Q&A for Service Control

Night Tube Q&A for Service Control:

Q. Why does Night Tube affect Service Control?
A. Night Tube will involve more night shifts, more work and responsibility on those night shifts and more anti-social working paterns.

Q. Haven't London Underground addressed these issues by giving extra staff on affected lines?
A. Some lines have been given extra staff to deal with Night Tube. This is because they have to provide extra staff for Meal Relief. Normally Meal Relief's are to be taken after the close of traffic. Now that is not an option.

RMT members from both LUL and FGW will be holding a rally at Paddington Station at the start of their respective strikes.
LUL have set out their stall to impose change on the workers and have been given the clearest response from the RMT.
92% of members voted for taking industrial action.

Equally impressive has been the response from our comrades on FGW who in a dispute over similar issues have voted overwhelmingly in favour of strikes.
