Hi this is my first post, i am a tube worker and i work in an operational role. Now what is happening is over ten years there will be a cull of a lot of support jobs in things like legal, finance, hr etc. Anyway this is not just LU but also TFL and most jobs i believe will be done away with natural wastage.
Nice to see people rubbing their hands at the thought of frontline staff getting the job but it's not really going to happen. The changes in staffing bought about by the implementation of oyster has already happened and in fact with new signalling systems being introuduced over the next 2 to 5 years more trains will be run on lines as they can run more closer to each other which means they will need more drivers to drive them. I must say though, my particular job which is in signal operations is going to be done away with in the next few years with the introduction of said new signalling systems but i guess thats just progress eh?
