HSCC VOTE YES FOR STRIKE ACTION

80% of Voters said YES for industrial action

In a joint effort from multiple grades working at Hammersmith Service Control Centre (Grove Road) a yes vote has been delivered sending a clear message to LU to fix the place!

We’d like to send a big thank you to everyone who returned their votes, for making their voice heard whether it was yes or no vote. All grades; Signalling System Managers, Line Information Specialists, Signallers,  Controllers & Service Managers, came together to tackle the issue with a united voice that this giant white elephant of a control centre isn’t fit for purpose.
