No tests for driverless trains
24 Sep 2012
The union has told London Underground that its members will play no part in testing work relating to driverless trains. A letter from the General Secretary tells the company that ASLEF members who are Test Train Operators and Duty Team Leaders will not work on any project to test driverless trains from 29 September.
This follows a ballot of these grades which revealed 90% backing for action. Discussions between the union and the company on the issue have failed to come to any agreement.
