Underground action on Boxing Day

14 December 2011

The union’s members working in London Underground have voted overwhelmingly to take action on Boxing Day. The dispute concerns the union’s insistence that the day must be covered by volunteers.


The union balloted its 2,200 Underground drivers and they returned a 92.3% vote in favour of action.


The whole dispute has been about seeking equitable quality time off for our members but recognising those who do operate the service may need to be incentivised.


The company is currently offering no additional payments for working on Boxing Day. The union says its members may need ‘substantial incentives’ to volunteer.


If the dispute is not resolved, the union intends to take further action on 16 January and 3 and 13 February.
