No to OSN 101!

Submitted by Tubeworker on Fri, 04/11/2011 - 11:08

RMT drivers voted by 80% to boycot LU's new OSN 101, which removes assisted dispatch and allows trains to reverse into platforms and passengers to be carried over shunt signals.

Like any action short of strike, successful action will require a lot of hard work by reps giving out information in every depot. There have been some examples where CCTV has not been working but drivers did not know they needed to request assisted dispatch.

But there are some success stories. At Holland Park, a driver noticed no CCTV and requested assisted dispatch. The member of station staff remained on the platform for the entire day.

This is a great example of drivers working to defend safety and protecting stations jobs at the same time. As the action picks up and spreads, there will be more examples like this.
