Prepare for battle on the Picc

Posted in Tubeworker's blog on Mon, 09/04/2018 - 00:28,

RMT drivers on the Piccadilly Line are heading for a dispute, after the two RMT branches covering the line passed motions noting "that due to continued mismanagement, morale levels on the line are at an historic low level."

Workers cite a raft of issues, including management obstruction of union reps; abuse of procedures; heavy-handed discipline; issues around safety; and more. We all know that solid action by drivers will massively impact the service. Hopefully it'll make the bosses sit up and take notice.

Meanwhile, members of the drivers' union Aslef at the Acton depot on the District Line will strike on 13 April in a dispute over disciplinary procedures following SPAD ("Signal Passed At Danger") incidents (also an issue in the Picc Line battle). The union argues that drivers are being unfairly disciplined rather than being given a chance to amend errors and improve.
