Revenue Control

Piecemeal privatisation Tubeworker Sat, 05/24/2014 - 06:32

LU used to get revenue inspectors to go out onto trains asking to see tickets in order to compile statistics on LU revenue lost due to unpaid fares.

Now LU has contracted out this element of a revenue inspector's duties to a private company. Its workers wear a hi vi emblazoned with 'in partnership with Tfl' on it.

This is a slippery slope which our unions must fight.

RCIs Bad For Business? Tubeworker Sun, 05/20/2012 - 11:51

Mike Brown promised at Fit for London that LU Revenue Control Inspector (RCI) numbers were not being reduced: "There is no plan whatsoever to cut Revenue Inspectors". But the truth appears otherwise....

Revenue managers keep spouting reduced fraud levels and new technology and talking about reducing numbers by 40%, refusing to guarantee that RCI jobs are safe.

Tubeworker would prefer a free transport system: no need for inspectors to fine poor people for evading extortionate fares.

Frontline Experience Tubeworker Wed, 03/21/2012 - 08:13

TfL has implemented a project called "Frontline Experience". It is a TfL wide plan not just applicable to London Underground, involving senior managers spending time with frontline operational staff in order to get experience of working on frontline operations.

Already, senior managers have stood alongside station staff and Revenue Inspectors but what exactly is it they are doing? When asked, the senior bosses have said it isn't anything to do with the Olympics coming up - so what is it then?

RCIs On The Move? Tubeworker Tue, 01/13/2009 - 10:26

LUL wants to move sub-surface RCIs from Baker Street to Wembley Park.

The only slight problem is ... they don't want to go! Not surprising, as it will mean more travelling for lots of them, and the facilities may not be as good.

Actually, there is another slight problem ... Wembley Park is not actually an SSR station - it's a Jubilee line station, so management may be overstepping their own rules. No, really?
