VS? No Thanks

LU management's latest ploy to undermine our fight against job cuts is to offer voluntary severance (VS) to a limited number of SAMFs, despite its 'consultation' not being over.

The company is doing this in order to create the impression that the job cuts are a done deal and will go ahead regardless of our industrial action. It also hopes that if enough people apply, they can spread the idea that there is no point striking for people who are willing to leave. But that's a fake argument: this fight is not about saving individual people, but about saving jobs.

So Tubeworker won't be touching the VS 'offer' with a bargepole. And if you are tempted, you might ask yourself - is it really your job to sell?!
