Docklands Light Railway workers In London scored a victory when they forced the reinstatement of a work colleague after threatening to run a strike ballot. Despite an internal appeal upholding the original sacking, workers forced a management climbdown. Management charged that the sacked worker with driving through a work party, even though his duties required him to be at both ends of the train at once. A colleague who also did this did not face disciplinary action. It goes to show that workers’ solidarity and militancy gets results.
