LUL is trying to change the procedure for refusal to work on safety grounds, possibly by cutting out the role of senior managers. This policy is a crucial protection for us at work, and we can hazard a guess that if management want to change it, they are up to no good. Weakening the procedure will make it harder to refuse unsafe work, and easier for managers to bully us into putting ourselves at risk.
So, what are our unions doing about it? We need information and leadership - now.
