District Line strike suspended

01 July 2005

ASLEF has agreed to suspend the threatened strike on the District Line for a week following agreement with LUL that where stations are without staff they will be closed.

Discussions are underway to release union safety reps to evaluate measures to improve safety and minimise vandalism.

District organiser Steve Grant said:

"We are pleased that LUL have agreed to move swiftly to tackle the safety and vandalism problems on the eastern end of the District line.

It is highly positive that they are prepared to closely involve our safety reps in the evaluation and implementation of new safety measures.

And we are delighted that station staffing vacancies will be filled and stations will not open unless adequately staffed."
