MEL (manual electronic logging) at Whitechapel cabin has been withdrawn permanently. This is thanks in large part to a lot of hard work by the local health and safety rep - and a good example of what difference an effective H&S rep can make.

We are not against new technology as such but making the job more difficult and distracting from the key task of running the train service safely is not a good idea! If you think that MEL is causing problems in your location then keep pressing the issue - and if necessary refuse to use it and return to sheets. Safe running of the service should always be paramount.
