RMT confirms further strike action by key group of staff at London Underground’s Ruislip Depot

TUBE UNION RMT has confirmed a further round of strike action by transplant train maintenance and stores staff at London Underground’s Ruislip Depot .

The strike action is over disputes about pay parity and payments associated with train preparation based on the duties staff undertake in their role.

The staff in dispute at Ruislip depot are instructed to take strike action by NOT BOOKING ON FOR ANY SHIFTS THAT COMMENCE BETWEEN:-

  • 19:00 hours on Friday 3rd August to 07:00 hours on Saturday 4th August 2018
  • 07:00 hours to 19:00 hours on Sunday 5th August 2018

The Ruislip depot has full responsibility for operation and maintenance of London Underground's fleet of engineering trains and it’s on track plant providing engineering services and haulage on a 24/7 basis to support the capital's tube network capital investment programme and ongoing maintenance demands.

RMT General Secretary Mick Cash said:

“RMT is angry and frustrated that our efforts to reach a negotiated settlement to this dispute continue to be kicked back at every turn by London Underground.

“Despite previous industrial action there has been no serious move by London Underground to resolve these disputes which is why we have been left with no choice but to press on with a campaign of strike action in the pursuit of justice for our members.

“The union continues to remain available for meaningful talks.”
