Tube bosses have decided to make a different award to the “Make a Difference” award, called the “You Matter” award, which will still be awarded for the subject matter of making a difference, but presumably a different deference to that awarded for making a difference currently.
The only award worth much in a capatalist society is payment for a day's work, especially if you work on a station group where the Area Manager is refusing to give out awards to save money.
The award title “You Matter” is ironic at best. A couple of years ago LU was busy sacking a load of us under the slogans “Fit for the Future” and lEvery Journey Matters”, along with cutting wages and increasing workload. We didn't matter much to the bosses then, so what has changed now?
If we really matter, employ more of us and increase our wages, especially for the lowest earners amongst us.
