Following their vote for industrial action (which we reported on here), RMT members on Fleet began a campaign of industrial action on 7 March, effectively a form of work-to-rule.
The action includes:
Not working any overtime or attend training courses outside of normal working hours
Not carrying out any higher grade duty work
Not changing any shifts or work locations to assist with maintenance
Trainers not carrying out training for anyone on a job that is not their substantive role
Coaches not to coach anyone on a job that is not their substantive role
Not working if there is not a valid and in date WRA, COSHH, and Manual Handling Assessment
Not working if there is no first aider on site
The form the action has taken shows just how much LU relies on our goodwill to keep things running most of the time. When they refuse to reciprocate, we should withdraw it.
