Managers trying to bulldoze through timetable changes on Jubilee Line

RMT confirms two 24 hours strikes on Jubilee line over imposed new timetable and ripping up of roster agreements

TUBE UNION RMT confirmed today that drivers on the Jubilee Line will be taking two days of strike action in June over the imposition of new timetables that ride roughshod over current rostering agreements.

After an overwhelming vote for action driver members will strike for 24 hours on the 6th and 14th June.

RMT General Secretary Mick Cash said:

“It is outrageous that tube managers are trying to bulldoze through timetable changes without agreement that ride roughshod over existing rostering agreements. It is symptomatic of a management that is out of control and hell bent on imposing change through diktat rather than through the established negotiating machinery.

“Drivers are angry at the impact on work life balance and rightly see this move as the thin end of a very long wedge that could see processes and agreements unilaterally shredded by tube bosses.

“There’s time for tube management to reverse the imposition of these changes and to start talking seriously with the unions rather than wading in with the big stick.”
