Managers trying to bulldoze through timetable changes on Jubilee Line

RMT confirms two 24 hours strikes on Jubilee line over imposed new timetable and ripping up of roster agreements

TUBE UNION RMT confirmed today that drivers on the Jubilee Line will be taking two days of strike action in June over the imposition of new timetables that ride roughshod over current rostering agreements.

After an overwhelming vote for action driver members will strike for 24 hours on the 6th and 14th June.

RMT General Secretary Mick Cash said:

H&C drivers to be balloted as bosses violate basic human rights

Subject: BREAKDOWN IN INDUSTRIAL RELATIONS, DRIVERS, HAMMERSMITH & CITY LINE – LONDON UNDERGROUND

We note the resolution from our Hammersmith & City Branch regarding the heavy-handed approach of disciplining members for taking personal needs breaks; and that the company is breaching agreements on this reached at ACAS.

This is an intolerable situation to our members and this union and we will not tolerate such a violation of our members human rights, agreements and LU’s own rule book!

Jubilee Line drivers: have you voted yet yet?

BREAKDOWN IN INDUSTRIAL RELATIONS, TRAIN OPERATORS, PICCADILLY LINE - LONDON UNDERGROUND (LUL/14/2)

Further to my previous Circular (IR/168/18, 28th March 2018) a resolution was also received from our Finsbury Park Branch and this matter has been considered by the National Executive Committee, which noted the views of Reps at the meeting held on Monday 23rd April and a report from the Lead Officer.

New duty schedules on the Jubilee Line

Dear member,

As we previously reported, your RMT reps rejected the new duty schedules for timetable 15 as they include an increase in weekend working. This matter was then taken up by RMT Trains Functional Council Reps with senior London Underground management. However, LU announced they would breach the 2015 pay deal and impost their new duty sheets on us.

The negative impact of our duty schedules is not a concern for our bosses as they don’t have to deal with thousands of passengers, do shifts, or work weekends. But for us on the front line, that is our lives.
