Waterloo & City Industrial Action Causes Line Closure

From RMT Senior Assistant General Secretary Mick Cash

Further to my circular (IR/37/14) dated 23rd January 2014,branches will recall that our Service Control members on the Waterloo and City Line are taking industrial action short of strike action over the union’s legitimate and reasonable demand for re-grading.
