At five stations: Euston, Kings Cross, Brixton, Victoria and Paddington, LU have extended the minimum £5 Oyster top up trial, despite the unions's opposition to this entire scheme.
Local staff or reps were not given any prior warning.....perhaps to avert a renewal of the campaign that both unions put up when the first trials were introduced in March.
LU's disgusting disregard of the union's procedures and requirement to consult staff is once agiain visible.
This scheme forces staff to collude in abolishing the necessity of their own jobs, at a time when doubts over job security loom large in peoples' minds.
Staff at every station should refuse to take part in this trial.
Or put more simply, staff should simply give the customers what they want. After all, aren't we supposed to be all about customer service?
