1987

EASEMENT OF MANNING AGREEMENT

On the 17th January, 1987, saw the implementation of the Easement of Manning Agreement and the revision to the 1965 manning agreement. This removed the requirement for a second man on light engine movements and, indeed, a second man only provided in exceptional or safety requirements.

A.S.L.E.& F., at local level, managed to protect some of their work on depots, utilising the Secondmen for coupling and uncoupling duties; their workload and requirements were, however, drastically reduced.
