Staff the stations, cover the duties!

LU's practise of not covering "non-critical" duties continues, meaning many stations are often short staffed. On some outlying areas, such as the north end of the Bakerloo Line, many stations are left entirely unstaffed.

The situation makes a mockery of LU's own documents and protocols. The company produces a "Business Needs Schematic" (BNS) for every station, stipulating the level at which the company itself says the station must be staffed. Apparently the BNS can now be disregarded.

At least one RMT branch, on the Bakerloo Line, has called for a dispute on these issues. That's the right attitude; perhaps industrial action will focus LU's mind.
