Tube bosses secret W&C dispute attack plan exposed

That we note the report from our Lead Officer that the company’s secret planned backlash against our members has been exposed.

Upon booking on, the company are planning to doorstep our driver members taking industrial action short of a strike, instructing them to confirm they will carry out the new imposed unsafe detraining process; sending them home without pay if they say they are abiding by their unions instruction to work safely.

This union will NOT tolerate our driver members being intimidated or victimised for taking lawful industrial action.
