Bakerloo News: Fight for free trade unions!

The Tory government elected on 12 December has announced plans to ban all-out strikes in the transport industry. They plan to introduce new laws that would impose a “minimum service
requirement” during transport strikes. Although the detail of how this would work has yet to be drawn up, in other countries where such laws exist, they usually mean that unions and employers agree between them that a certain number of workers will work through a strike to guarantee the minimum service level is met.

RMT winning for tube drivers: SPAD CDI thrown out

- Please download the attached newsletter.

RMT train driver Mulu Tumzghi faced termination at CDI following a SPAD in Neasden depot. The RMT went into dispute and fought his case and now this unnecessary disciplinary has been thrown out. Mulu is back at work as a train driver because he is a member of the RMT, the train drivers union.

Mulu should never have faced a a disciplinary charge: his was not an aggravated SPAD. Mulu was honest about what happened and followed instructions as soon as he was aware of his error.
