Remember the special events team? It has resurfaced as the 'special requirements team', and management want it to be paid for by the ticket office closures.
Excuse us, the 'special events team' was part of the stations shorter working week deal, and we (more than) paid for it then. LUL, obviously feeling rather cocky, now seem to think that they can make us pay for it twice!
And what's the difference between an 'event' and a 'requirement'? Tubeworker suspects that 'requirements' is a broader term which may see this roving team cover not just events but, say, short-staffing or industrial action.
