Union safety reps have been telling LU for some time now that the "HOT procedure" for identifying suspect packages needs improving.
LU seem to have tacitly admitted that existing procedures are inadequate, but their changes make things worse. Rather than reviewing the "HOT procedure" and looking for ways to improve it, they've simply imposed an additional instruction that members of staff look inside suspicious bags and cases! So if we identify something as suspicious, we're now expected to start rifling around inside it.
Tubeworker strongly reiterates unions' instructions to their members not to comply with this dangerous instruction.
