RMT confirms further strike action on DLR in dispute over breakdown in industrial relations

RMT cleaners, security staff and travel safe officers on Docklands Light Railway will be taking part in a further phase of strike action over a comprehensive breakdown in industrial relations, the union confirmed today, as the intransigent attitude of the management continues to refuse to meet and negotiate a settlement.

The workers involved in the dispute are employed by contractor ISS on the KAD contract and will take further strike action as follows:

Not to book on for any turns of duty that commence between:-

• 05:30 hours on Wednesday 13th June 2018 and 05:29 hours on Thursday 14th June 2018.

RMT General Secretary Mick Cash said: 

“We are supporting our members in this further phase of strike action in a bid to force management to honour agreements, pay staff their contractual hours and give their staff proper respect and dignity at work. 

“It is now time for the London Mayor, Sadiq Khan, to step in and sort out this company who are abusing a key group of London transport workers on his watch. 

“RMT Reps continue to press management to settle the dispute but the company are blatantly ignoring the union’s concerns. It is horrendous that the company will not engage with us over the serious issues affecting pay and rosters and have shown no interest in resolving the dispute.

“The union remains available for meaningful talks.”
