Overground Night Service

Submitted by Tubeworker on Fri, 12/15/2017 - 22:09

Spare a thought for those staff affected by London Overground's night service, which kicks off tonight.

The Overground stations will be staffed by security guards, if they are staffed at all. And the affected London Underground stations? Who knows? There has been practically zero consultation with our unions about how the stations will deal with the extra demand.

While the Overground night service isn't stopping at any Underground services - for now - LUL stations may well take a hit from punters who have heard that there is a night service on the Overground and expect it to be running from their station.

Management are fast running out of time to get arrangements sorted for when London Overground's night coverage expands in the Spring.

We may have to make them wake up and smell the coffee.
