Necessary Delays

Posted in Tubeworker's blog on Fri, 30/12/2011 - 19:43,

Problems persist with the sensitive edge door technology on the Victoria Line.

Recently, four sensitive edge incidents in ten minutes resulted in a 40 minute delay; the service didn't recover that day.

Management hate the sensitive edge technology because it messes with their precious reliability targets.

But they put up with it because it serves their long-term goal of getting rid of drivers.

Doesn't this sum up the way employers use technology? They use it to increase their control of us, kick us out of work and increase unemployment.

That's why we need to fight through our unions for technology to be used to benefit workers and wider society. Go on LU, lighten our workload and improve the service for the public for a change!
