Picc fleet workers gear up for action in fight for permanent jobs

Picc fleet workers will commence industrial action from 25 July in their dispute to win permanent jobs and push back casualisation.

RMT members will participate in various forms of "action-short-of-strike":

<li>Overtime ban</li>
<li>Not carrying out work beyond their substantive positions and locations</li>
<li>Not deviating from current valid approved work instruction documents</li>
<li>Not deviating from current valid approved risk assessments</li>
<li>Not deviating from the latest issue of the TubeLines supplement to the LU rulebook</li>
<li>Not to work on site unless a first aider is on duty</li>
<li>Not to perform coaching and/or buddy duties</li>

In an area of the job that relies hugely on overtime, and a large amount of goodwill from staff to help out the guvnors, this action, which amounts to a comprehensive "work to rule", has the potential to seriously disrupt TubeLines/LU's functioning. Picc fleet reps are confident that this action will be even more impacting than a one or two-day strike.

Strikes, of several days if necessary, should be named if the action-short doesn't get results. In the meantime, all Picc fleet workers should gear up to work to rule.
