Management are showing how they intend to achieve the 'savings' and 'efficiencies' they are desperate to find - by attacking our job security. London Underground Ltd has revealed its plan to extend the use of fixed-term contracts and non-permanent labour (commonly known as temporary workers). LUL plans to over three hundred of these in fleet depots and workshops.
These workers are entitled to secure, permanent work, not to be picked up when management want them and dropped when they don't. And the permanent workforce are entitled to secure jobs without the incursion of casualisation into the workplace. It is essential that we defend every job and our overall staffing levels.
RMT is balloting its LUL fleet members for strike action and action short of strikes. Vote YES and YES!
