Service suspended on Piccadilly Line between Hammersmith and Hyde Park Corner and minor delays on the rest of the line due to person under a train at Earls Court. Tickets being accepted on local buses, and First Capital Connect services.
Talks will resume at the conciliation service ACAS this morning to try to avert a strike by control room staff on the Piccadilly line.
Members of the RMT union are due to commence their action on Sunday evening. The strike will be followed by a work to rule.
The dispute centers around plans to move control room staff to the Hammersmith Service Control Centre. The RMT says the re-organistation could lead to job losses.
These are the same key service control staff who keep services running when demand is at a peak and they are the same staff who manage the problems when the lines are hit by breakdowns and failures. They deserve respect for the job that they do and not the imposition of inferior working conditions and the threat to jobs.
