Central line drivers to strike

Defend Gary Carney

Central Line drivers will strike from 21:00 on 5 May to 20:59 on 6 May, as the campaign to win reinstatement for unjustly sacked RMT rep Gary Carney steps up.

Gary was sacked for allegedly “avoiding” a Drugs and Alcohol test, despite having booked off sick before he was even informed about the test.

London Underground accepts Gary was legitimately sick and that he followed the correct procedure to book off. Gary took a D&A test upon his return to work and passed. Strong action on 5-6 May will show London Underground that Gary’s workmates won’t allow this injustice to go unchallenged.

If Gary is not reinstated, the action will need to spread.

There isnt a great deal of support.... hainault voted no to striking.... other depots had a number of no votes too but met requirements.... drivers dont want to lose pay for what is seen as another lost cause
