Management Action On Jubilee Line Leads To Ballot For Joint Union Strike

We note the resolution from our Jubilee South branch, and the numerous problems being caused by management at North Greenwich and Stratford depots. Following thorough discussion with our representatives and in line with their expressed views, we instruct the General Secretary to ballot our train driver members at Stratford and North Greenwich depots for strike action, to a timescale that will enable co-ordinated action with ASLEF. A personal letter is to be sent to all members being balloted, strongly urging them to vote Yes.

We remain available for talks to resolve this dispute. Should it not be resolved to our satisfaction, we will consider escalating the industrial action to all drivers on the Jubilee line. We therefore instruct the General Secretary to send a personal letter to all members at Wembley Park depot explaining this dispute and seeking their support, and to ensure that relevant representatives visit Wembley Park to speak to members

London Transport Regional Council and branches to be advised.
