Strikes on the horizon as Piccadilly Line drivers and DLR staff vote for action

Submitted by Tubeworker on Mon, 26/10/2015 - 23:01

Two RMT ballots which closed last week have delivered huge votes for strikes.

Picc Line drivers have voted by an 85% majority for strikes, and by an even higher margin for action short of strikes, in their dispute over the breakdown of industrial relations with local management, brought to a head by the unjust sacking of a driver.

And DLR staff (those directly employed by contractor KAD, as opposed to outsourced staff such as the cleaners) have voted by 92% for strikes in a wide-ranging dispute over a variety of issues, including management bullying and harassment.

Strikes in these disputes should be coordinated to maximise impact... and how about a joint Picc Line drivers'/DLR strike day being the launchpad for reinstating action in our LU-wide disputes, too?
