Stand firm to knock back "flash and dash"

The stage is set for a solid dispute to defend detrainment staff on the Waterloo & City Line.

With RMT’s action mandate now live, Aslef naming a strike on the Central Line (Waterloo & City drivers are supplied by Leytonstone depot) on 5 October, and RMT planning to ballot station staff at Waterloo as part of the same dispute, the pressure is mounting on management to back off from their plans to force drivers to take their trains into sidings without them having been physically checked.

The introduction of this process, known as “flash and dash”, was pushed back on the Bakerloo Line a few years ago by solid action. We can do the same on the Waterloo & City.
