This morning I met with the GSM who presented me and the TSSA rep with the new rosters.
As we look at our local predicament we must not lose sight of the attack on jobs in other locations, and the fact that our nightmare has become reality for someone somewhere on the combine.

Our fundamental objections are to:
1 full time SAMF to go!
SAMFs no longer a 0700-1100 duty, it is no 0615-1400 with a 0515 start on some Thursdays.
1 full time CSA to go!
reduction in weekends for CSAs
2 duties to cover at Liverpool Street station – which may be seen as a further dilution of rostered status.
1 full time CSA job to go
Fewer weekends off
