Management's Response and our Failure to Agree: Job Cuts and Roster 2010

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.

Collective Grievance for Liverpool Street Group

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

King's Cross ticket office cuts

Finally, LU has spilled the beans as to its intentions for the King's Cross ticket offices, which it left out of the original details for ticket office cuts.. Here are the gory details (current times in brackets).
