So you’re a carer?
Like most carers you’ve probably answered ‘no’ to that question. That’s one of the things about being a ‘carer’ - you don’t really see yourself as one! Most of us just think of ourselves as a mum or dad, a son or daughter, a husband, wife, partner or friend. And yet the experience of looking after a family member, partner or friend is very common.

Dear Colleagues you may remember the details of our collective grievance from back in August 2010 if not you can find them by following this link: http://www.rmtplatform.org.uk/node/857.
The GSM has now provided a response which I have repudiated today. Please take a look. It’s six pages long, but it will give you a clear idea of what I’ve been up to in level 1 meetings.

Having initially complained to Ofcom and discovered that they don't deal with complaints about the BBC, I have (again) complained to the BBC itself about its inaccurate. Here's my complaint.
Today, the BBC has repeatedly referred to the Tube strike being about 800 job losses 'in ticket offices'. This is inaccurate.

TfL claim that only the delays on the Metropolitan Line this week were caused by the RMT's overtime ban, imposed in protest at massive job cuts.

You may remember that I complained to the BBC about their reporting of our strikes, where they continually referred to "800 job cuts in ticket offices", when in fact many of the job cuts are among CSAs, who work around the stations, not in the ticket offices. You can read my complaint here.
The BBC has responded. The response is pretty woeful - you can read both it, and my response to it, below.
Dear Ms Booth
Thank you for your e-mail regarding coverage of the London Underground strike.

CONTEXT OF INDUSTRIAL ACTION

Just a quick one to let you know of something kind of worrying that has started to happen.
The other day the Early turn SS didnt show up at Cannon St so the station was closed low and behold someone must of realised that its Hendys home station and quickly hunted around for someone to man the station. At approx 06:30 the early turn CSA was sent from East Ham to cover Cannon St.
