OSP 2010/11

OSP Adventure

Is LU panicking about the Olympics? Maybe that's why they are drafting in 600 new CSAs on top of the 300 they've already recruited?

LU's recruitment of more CSAs than the number of stations job cuts last year proves we were right to resist OSP.

But it doesn't make up for three years of...

Keep Fighting For Stations Jobs

Since February, station staff have been living with the impact of the OSP job cuts: anti-social rosters and staff shortages. Staff are also learning to live with new attacks, such as enhanced AFM functionality, as the unions have not given any lead so far on how we should resist them.

But we...

No Strikes Before Job Cuts?

It now seems clear that RMT and TSSA will not name any more strike dates before the station job cuts come in on 6th February. This does not mean the dispute is over but it is difficult to see what we can achieve without any strike dates before the implementation.

In the words of one member of...

Invisible!

London Undergound, too skint to afford staff, has found money to employ consultants to ask station staff how we can make ourselves more visible to customers!

How idiotic is this? If they are so worried, perhaps they might think about keeping the hundreds of station staff who are fighting to save...

Stations Job Cuts AND Casualisation?!

LU management plan that when the stations job cuts come in, staff who are not displaced into a rostered position will be displaced off a roster onto the group reserve. Station groups' reserves will swell to more than the official numbers, what LU calls 'over establishment'.

When LU says it's skint,...

Still Time to Fight!

LU have published the new rosters, minus the jobs we have been fighting to save. Some people feel this means LU have finally got their way. But the fight is not over. The new rosters do not come into effect until February 6th; LU are participating in a review of the cuts; a lot of RMT branches have...

Job Cuts Dispute: Where are we?

So ... where are we with this fight against job cuts then?!

150 managers and admin already gone ... another 650 stations jobs due to go on 6 February ... 600 to go in the 'support services review' ... Project Horizon to usher in more, no doubt ... and individuals' jobs going at a rate of knots to...

VS? No Thanks

LU management's latest ploy to undermine our fight against job cuts is to offer voluntary severance (VS) to a limited number of SAMFs, despite its 'consultation' not being over.

The company is doing this in order to create the impression that the job cuts are a done deal and will go ahead regardless...

We Can Win!

Some people might have thought from the most recent strike that the fight was weakening on the Victoria Line. Unlike the previous strike, LU managed to run a service along the full length of the line.

In fact, the fight is not weakening amongst the drivers. The first strike, they couldn't run...

Another 800 Job Cuts

London Underground has announced another 800 job cuts, planning to get rid of 400 "support staff" (whatever that may mean) and not filling another 400 posts currently either vacant or covered by temps.

For any remaining doubters, it must now be crystal clear that (a) the 800 station staff job cuts...
