RMT members to strike on DLR on New Year’s Eve over breakdown in industrial relations

RMT cleaners, security staff and travel safe officers on Docklands Light Railway will be taking strike action on New Year’s Eve over a comprehensive breakdown in industrial relations. The workers are employed by contractor ISS on the KAD contract.

The dispute has arisen over the failure to hold meaningful pay talks or provide a proper response to the union’s pay claim and the failure to resolve long standing issues.

RMT members working for ISS (KAD Contract) are instructed to not to book on for any turns of duty that commence between:-

•             0600 hours on Sunday 31st December 2017 until 0559 hours on Monday 1st January 2018

RMT General Secretary Mick Cash said:
 
“We are supporting our members’ strike action in a bid to force management to properly adhere to the agreed negotiating machineries and stop trying to impose fundamental changes to working conditions. 

“RMT Reps have continually chased management to resolve the dispute but the company are blatantly ignoring the union’s concerns.

“We are calling on ISS to do the right thing before Christmas and return to the negotiating table.”
