Justice for Ezra

Attached is a leaflet outlining the injustice Bakerloo Train Operator Ezra Christian is facing at the hands of a management who have no sense of the human effect of their actions. Whilst management woefully disregard agreements and commitments in order to push for the toughest penalties, they should be in no doubt that the union will defend its members in every way possible.

Having considered the current position the NEC decided that we should discuss the issues most recently raised by our negotiating team through the machinery and that we should also consolidate our already gained commitments from LUL.

Driver’s Cab Security System

RMT Trains Health and Safety Council members today met with LU management and LU engineers, in the latest of a series of meetings to discuss the driver’s cab security system.

Recent meetings have focused on the timings around drivers over-riding unauthorised access to the driver’s cab. Consideration also has to be given to access in an emergency should the driver become incapacitated.
