RMT winning for tube drivers: SPAD CDI thrown out

- Please download the attached newsletter.

RMT train driver Mulu Tumzghi faced termination at CDI following a SPAD in Neasden depot. The RMT went into dispute and fought his case and now this unnecessary disciplinary has been thrown out. Mulu is back at work as a train driver because he is a member of the RMT, the train drivers union.

Mulu should never have faced a a disciplinary charge: his was not an aggravated SPAD. Mulu was honest about what happened and followed instructions as soon as he was aware of his error.
