Waterloo and City line service controllers will strike for 48 hours next week in their fight to have their job uprated.
W&C controllers are paid less than every other service controller on the job - they have a grade all to themselves so that the company can pay them five grand less than others. They are even paid less than some signal operators.
This is despite the fact that their job includes signal operations, line control and line information, and despite new equipment being installed in their control room.
LUL offered to uprate them last year, but when they found out that this would be at the cost of jobs in other grades in the depot, they refused to accept.
These services controllers have shown solidarity with other grades, so let's all show solidarity with them.
