LU have been putting delays as low as 30 seconds on to drivers’ permanent records. Now the unions have started overturning them, LU have moved to adding them without informing the driver.
The problem lies with creating a new management grade purely to deal with service delays...what a waste of money! They even discipline drivers that don't make announcements within 30seconds of stopping at a signal. If you’re lucky it takes two minutes before the controller to tells you why you’re stopped. Where’s the sense?
