Union dismisses LUL legal action as a distraction

19 December 2011

London Underground today launched legal action in a bid to halt strikes planned by the ASLEF London tube drivers on Boxing Day.

An ASLEF spokesperson said the union was not surprised at the legal challenge, but it was disappointed.

‘I am sure Londoners would prefer LUL to be sitting down with the union hammering out a solution to this dispute rather than wasting time briefing solicitors and wasting money by pouring it into the pockets of barristers,’ he said. ‘We don’t expect the legal challenge to be successful and all it will do is increase ill-feeling which will make an agreement more difficult to secure.

‘Legal action at this time is no more than a distraction.’
