Was rather busy yesterday but there wasn’t much to write about on Tuesday apart from the usual defects that bedevil us daily. RMT have announced strikes in support of Arwen Thomas, the Northern Line TOp who along with the now reinstated Eamonn Lynch has been the cause of much agitation since last December.
I’ve just checked the dates and I’ll be on leave so I’ll miss all the fun. There’s another hangover from the days when the managers used to think they were the generals and we were their army to be commanded. We don’t get holiday, we get leave; we don’t get meal breaks, we get meal reliefs; we don’t do shifts, we do duties.
Must be something to do with sticking us all in uniform.
