Docklands Light railway cleaners to strike

CHANGES TO CLEANING OPERATIONS – INTERSERVE FACILITIES (KEOLIS AMEY DOCKLANDS CONTRACT) (DLR/15/4)

Further to my previous Circular (IR/111/16, 14th April 2016), members are congratulated for an overwhelming ‘YES’ vote for taking strike action and action short of a strike. Following consultation with the DLR Branch and Lead Officer, the National Executive Committee has taken the decision to instruct all RMT Cleaner and Cleaning Supervisor members at Interserve (KAD) NOT TO BOOK ON FOR ANY SHIFTS THAT COMMENCE BETWEEN:-

  • 06:00 hours on Tuesday 26th April 2016 until 05:59 hours on Thursday 28th April 2016.

It is unacceptable that members have been left in such an uncertain position by imposed changes to rosters and shift patterns, booking on arrangements and many members still do not have a copy of their contact of employment. As always, the Company are aware that we remain available for talks and I will keep Branches advised of all further developments.

What is a National Executive Committee decision?

This article is an 'executive decision' which has been written by the RMT National Executive Committee. The National Executive is the union's governing body in between AGMs. Its decisions set out what the union will do on a particular issue.

These decisions can often be brief, and may be one of several passed over a period of time. To get a better understanding or find out more information about what the RMT is doing, speak to your rep or attend your branch or Regional Council meeting.
