Meeting called to debate train prep schedule changes

TRAIN PREPARATION SCHEDULE - LONDON UNDERGROUND (LUL/14/10)

The following resolution has been received from our East Ham Branch:-

“This branch notes the very dangerous intention by LU to change the train preparation schedule from every 24 hours to every 96 hours. London Underground are saying that this is as safe as 24 hours. No safety related submission has been provided to back this up. The company will effectively be running a train service with a large percentage of its train service unchecked for four days at a time.
