Cough Up!

Submitted by Tubeworker on Wed, 08/22/2012 - 15:31

It was tough that Olympic dead late shifts finished an hour later than usual, at 2 and 3am. It was even worse that staff taxis were scheduled to be 90 minutes later!!

But did LU pay us extra money for the time we were detained at work beyond the end of our shifts?

On the night of the Opening Ceremony, some staff taxis were no shows and staff slept at their stations overnight. Where staff have put a fight up, LU have reluctantly coughed up for overtime. We should all fight to be paid for extra time spent at work over the Olympics and Paralympics. Our Olympics 'bonus' was supposed to be extra money, not an excuse for LU to avoid coughing up for overtime.
