Strikes due across London Underground

Submitted by Matthew on 15 May, 2013 - 7:46

Workers across London Underground in the RMT union could strike in a series of disputes over a variety of issues.

Cleaners working for the contractor ISS returned a 100% vote in favour of strikes to demand the payment of the London Living Wage from day one of employment, and against management abuse of sickness procedures.
Electrical engineers and contractors employed by Mitie voted by a nine to one margin for strikes to stop redundancies and unilateral changes to working conditions.
Hammersmith and City, Metropolitan, and Circle Line drivers also voted to strike in a dispute around issues arising from the introduction of new stock. Demands include more time for train preparation.
Drivers and driver instructors on the Piccadilly Line will also ballot for strikes against management’s abuse of agreed procedures.
London Overground workers employed by STM Security will take further action in a long-running dispute over management bullying.
They will begin action short of a strike on 17 May, including refusal to submit incident reports.
