Station staff on the Wealdstone side at Harrow and Wealdstone, separated from the Harrow side by a long footbridge, still have no access to a toilet or running water. LU insists that the local council, not them, are responsible for the plumbing so fixing it is out of their hands.
Whoever’s fault it is, it’s not acceptable. Having access to toilet facilities at work is a basic requirement of workplace dignity. Local management’s response – that workers can use the facilities on the Harrow side – is hardly adequate, especially when they insist that Wealdstone workers can only go over once someone arrives from the Harrow side to take their place, meaning they basically have to broadcast their request over the radio and then sit there in discomfort while they wait for their… err… “relief” to arrive.
No wonder the place is nicknamed “Horror and Tombstone”!
