Needed: Regime Change

Submitted by Tubeworker on Mon, 09/17/2007 - 15:15

Piccadilly line drivers are getting well naffed off with the regime on the line following the recent-ish arrival of a new performance manager.

One driver's employment was terminated after less than two months off sick. Another was sacked - upheld on appeal - following a driving error which was serious but no more serious than errors made by other drivers who were not sacked. And when a manager complained about another manager threatening him, both of them were sacked!

One isolated incident might be shrugged off, but this is beginnning to look like a pattern! Drivers from both ends of the line are now talking about taking industrial action. Management be warned.
