Jobs Disappearing Through the Back Door!

Your RMT Reps have received information that shows London Underground (LUL) cutting jobs through the back door. The RMT has called for an emergency meeting with LUL management to explain what they are doing and await their reply to our request.

Only three non-members came into work on Sunday/Monday causing the Management to cover stations with th RCi's, DSM's and office staff which showed great support for our sacked colleague Jerome Bowes.

CSAs moved groups: utter disgrace!

Three CSAs off our group were disgracefully displaced to Waterloo last week by Resourcing who stated that the CSAs were 'over establishment' at Charing Cross and due to the fact a dubious letter saying they may be moved had been signed when they all first joined the job. Management think that they have the right to just move staff on as they feel like it with no concern to the correct proceedure within Transfer and Promotions.

Poor performance wins again!

After Resourcing's latest fiasco with regards to the three CSAs being told that they are moving to Waterloo, we brought the matter before the stations and revenue functional council today.
