Disputes

Solid action takes grade consolidation fight forward

The strike action on 26 and 27 November caused widespread disruption across the network. Solid pickets across the affected lines meant bosses were often unable to run even token services. Attempts to run a shuttle service between Cockfosters and Arnos Grove on the Picc soon fell foul when the lack...
