RMT strike action on Bakerloo Line goes ahead Friday as LU refuse serious talks

TUBE UNION RMT confirmed today that strike action on the Bakerloo line in a dispute over the impact on train drivers over unworkable timetable changes that place operators under intolerable levels of personal stress will go ahead as planned from lunchtime on Friday after tube bosses slammed the door on serious talks aimed at reaching a solution.

Our ballot returned a 95% majority for taking industrial action. At the heart of this dispute, and what most people believe to be the problem with our timetables, are the turnaround times in the North Sheds at Queen’s Park. These turnaround times have been cut to the bone over the past couple of years. The RMT have demanded that these are improved. This in turn would require moredrivers. This in turn would make our working day bearable.

RMT Upfront: Tube Drivers' News Pay Special

RMT Upfront is the newsletter for tube drivers from the RMT. In this special edition we look at what the company has offered for drivers in their so called 'full and final' pay and conditions offer, and why the RMT has come to the decision that a ballot for industrial action is now required to enable us to push for a better, fairer offer.
