Massive pay win for RMT cleaners on DLR

Transport union RMT has secured a massive pre-Christmas pay victory for key groups of staff working for outsourcing company Interserve on London’s Docklands Light Railway.

After RMT put on a package of strike action and action short of a strike further negotiations have been held with Interserve on the pay issue.

As a result of the industrial pressure the company have now agreed to a 75p per hour increase for all cleaning supervisors, travel safe and security staff, backdated to April 2015.

RMT confirms new series of strikes on Docklands Light Railway

RAIL UNION RMT said today that staff across all grades on Keolis Amey Docklands Light Railway will strike on four occasions next year in a dispute over a range of serious unresolved issues that are wrecking industrial relations. The action follows a 48 hour strike on DLR last month which completely shut down the service for the duration.
 
The announcement of action comes after continuing talks have so far failed to make any serious progress. RMT members voted by 92% for action back in October.
