Friday was timetable, nothing to warrant inclusion here. There have been fears that with the shrinking of the roster the expanded pool will end up covering the other depots (LOU, HAI, WHC and WER) or even being transferred but so far I’ve learnt that WER have lost 7 places in the roster, LOU have gained one, I’m sure WHC has lost a few and I haven’t heard of any big changes either way at HAI so it’s not as if there is anywhere for us to go.
Another strange piece if information is that apparently even though we have vacancies at LOU and a large waiting list no one is being allowed to transfer from other lines onto the Central Line, while at the same time another driver who applied for a job driving Test Trains, whatever they are, was told that Central Line drivers were not eligible for the position as the company wanted to keep them all there. What is going on up at 55?
