Industrial action

When negotiations fail, RMT members take action

Meeting arranged to discuss Central Line dispute

BREAKDOWN IN INDUSTRIAL RELATIONS, TRAIN OPERATORS, CENTRAL LINE - LONDON UNDERGROUND (LUL/14/2)

Further to my previous Circular (IR/506/18, 21st November 2018) a series of talks with the Company took place at ACAS before Christmas in an effort to seek a resolution to this dispute. There was some movement on the key issues and the National Executive Committee took the decision to suspend the strike action on Friday 21st and Saturday 22nd December 2018.

the government anti-trades union laws; and that we need to conduct another ballot to assist our members to continue working safely.

Tube union RMT today announced further strike action on London Underground’s Central Line on Friday 21st December and Saturday 22nd December 2018. The action is over a comprehensive breakdown in industrial relations, a failure to employ enough drivers, a wholesale abuse of agreed procedures and the victimisation of a trade union member.

It follows on from 24 hours action earlier this month which shut down the service completely.
