Central line strike

18 August 2014

The strike follows a vote of more than 90% in favour of industrial action. Finn Brennan, District 8 Organiser, said: 'This dispute has been brought about by management intransigence on a range of issues, but at its heart is management’s refusal to treat drivers with the respect and dignity they deserve at work.

Our members will not tolerate a situation where vulnerable people leave sickness review meetings in tears and drivers with years and years of good and long service are threatened with disciplinary action for a delay of 33 seconds in leaving a terminus. LUL is also cutting annual refresher training for drivers on the Central line by 20%. This flies in the face of recommendations made by the Rail Accident Investigation Branch in its report into the ‘uncontrolled evacuation’ of a train at Holland Park last August which recommended staff on the line needed additional training.' Further talks are scheduled to take place on Tuesday.
