7th of July Stations and Revenue Grades Committee

The next stations and revenue grades committee meets on: Wednesday 7th of July at 1500 hrs at The Exmouth Arms. The nearest station is Euston Square. If you need directions or further information please contact mailto:g.bowtell@gmail.com.

It is important that as many reps as possible attend, and it would be great if reps could bring members with them as this is may be the last meeting we have before any industrial action takes place - certainly this will be the last SRGC meeting before the closing date of the all grades ballot.

"White City Tube Station is very busy and well and is situated at the heart of a large residential community and serves a number of major businesses such as the BBC and Westfield Shopping Centre. I object most strongly to the proposed staff cuts at this station."

Average Call to Oyster Help Line Takes Nearly 11 Minutes

A freedom of information request shows that it takes on average nearly 11 minutes to resolve a query for customers calling the Oyster Helpline.

Is this what TfL and LU see as staying true to their vision of world class customer service when discussing job cuts? Is 11 minutes on a telephone better service than a face to face chat with staff in a ticket office?

Special Safety Notice from the Stations and Revenue Safety Council

Last Thursday, 29th April, RMT reps from the Stations and Revenue Safety Council were asked to attend a special meeting to discuss safety issues from the OSP (Job cuts programme).

We attended the meeting and at the start made it clear that as this matter was still at company council we would not be prepared to discuss anything or sit through any presentation.
