Industrial action

  • 21:00 hours on Tuesday 04 February 2014 until 20:59 hours on Thursday 06 February 2014

Action short of strike

In addition, we are asking all station grades members, RCIs, admin grades and Duty Station Managers to commence an overtime and rest day working ban with effect from 21:00 on 04 February 2014 until further notice.

All LU station grades members are instructed not to carry out any revenue duties:

  • Between 09:30 hours and 11:30 hours and 18:30 hours and 20:30 hours on Friday 07 February 2014
  • Between 09:30 hours and 11:30 hours and 18:30 hours and 20:30 hours on Monday 10 February 2014
  • Between 09:30 hours and 11:30 hours and 18:30 hours and 20:30 hours on Friday 14 February 2014

Negotiations continue

We have more talks scheduled at ACAS over the next week. Your Reps will be doing everything possible to persuade LUL that, if they end the sham, a negotiated solution is possible. The ball is very firmly in management’s court.

If LUL have any sense and wish to avoid industrial action, then the remedy is clear – get serious and start talking! It is now time to listen to what staff have to say, not play political games.
