Despite LUL being informed of serious breaches of agreements with regards to BCV and SSL, management continue to use the JNP Gangs on non-JNP areas.
The man concerns of this are:
- The JNP Point Care Team includes dual skilling track and signals staff that we believe is a direct threat to job security
- There has been no discussions to vary any BCV and SSL agreements.
- Impacts on existing staff in the SSL gang have included being placed into the redeployment pool, alienated so that the have wanted to move and we believe there is now a complete breakdown in Industrial Relations over the matter
Sadly, it seems that we have been given no choice but to look to our members to defend our agreements and our job security. We are therefore compiling a ballot matrix of all BCV and SSL Signal Staff with a view to Industrial Action.
We remain available for talks.
