Service control: latest

Service control review ... We are still waiting for news on the mapping (ie. who's going where) and the promotional positions. Why is it taking so long? Why is the union not keeping people better informed about what is happening?

Uncertainty is very stressful, and although no-one is going to be made redundant, a lot of us still don't know where we are going to be working, or whether we will still have a job in service control come next March. It's not a nice way to treat people.

And while we're on the subject of treating people badly, the signalling modern apprentices have been treated particularly badly. They were taken on as modern apprentices, to become signal operators. Now with the service control review, they are being displaced to stations jobs without protected earnings at signal operator rate.

Never mind the fact that they didn't join to be SAs, they joined to be signal operators. They will be given the chance to come back into service control as jobs come up, but in the meantime they are being treated as disposable bods, to be sent where/when ever.
