Mind the Reality Gap when it comes to cleaning uniform.

Gerry Duffy's recent letter to Bob Crow about uniform cleaning token shows that there is a great divide between what management think they know and what it actually the case.

Bermondsey

Whilst management stated that both Station Supervisors and Control Room staff would be unaffected by the OSP proposals, it is clear this is not the case.

Overtime and rest day working …

The matter of overtime and rest day working was raised with the new GSM, who insisted that there was not a ‘blanket’ overtime ban, but merely that ‘overtime’ was being more closely managed. However, the outcome of this ‘closely managed overtime’ has been evident for all to see... Ticket offices closed, gate lines unstaffed, meal relief duties un-covered and staff being told to take DMR’s, and all this why we are being told to provide ‘A world class service’...

Stop Victimising Elaine!

RMT has demanded that London Underground stop its victimisation of Waterloo station staff representative Elaine Holness (pictured).

On 5 March, Elaine went to work at Waterloo and was informed that she was stood down from duties pending an investigation into allegations that she 'racially harassed' a manager. What had she done to warrant this? She had given evidence at an Employment Tribunal in support of sacked RMT member Mo Makhboul which included criticising a manager. When Elaine attended a fact-finding interview, management told her that the investigation would be taken via Route C which could lead to dismissal.

RMT ballots Waterloo Tube staff for action over ‘astonishing’ unfair sacking

RMT press release, issued today

SOME 85 station staff at London Underground’s Waterloo and Westminister stations are being balloted for industrial action by the Tube’s biggest union over the unfair dismissal of a station assistant, despite the lack of any evidence that an alleged ‘altercation’ took place. The RMT ballot will close on August 19.

Mo Makboul was summarily dismissed by a disciplinary panel in April after leaving the ticket office at Waterloo to return a pass left behind by a passenger who had been seeking a refund.
