As ESAF rolls on, MFs are getting a whole five hours training in how the system works. Some people might suggest that is not enough. We will certainly need a longish period of grace to make mistakes without getting into trouble.
A certain Piccadilly line manager reckoned that after the training, an MF could pop back to work to finish off their duty. Er, no. You're either training on a particular day, or working. Not both. And that's not to mention the travelling time from the training venue to the workplace. Whoops - time's up.
Funny, isn't it? How managers are suddenly concerned about Ticket Offices staying open when they think they can squeeze a bit more work out of us - but less than bothered the rest of the time!
But it's also 'funny' how little the unions seem to have to say on the whole issue of ESAF.
