Tube LUL Dispute - ASLEF urges arbitration

05 September 2005

ASLEF and the RMT have today (26th September) written to the arbitration service ACAS asking it to urgently investigate the possibility of arbitration in the Tube dispute.

The tube unions have urged abritration as a means of resolving the dispute, over pay and other employment conditions, including pensions, throughout. London Underground management have hitherto refused any suggestion of arbitration and have instead imposed an unacceptable pay offer on their employees.

ASLEF general secretary Mick Rix said today: "This dispute could be averted if LUL bosses are prepared to go to arbitration. I hope that ACAS can persuade them that talking is better than senseless confrontation and megaphone diplomacy which can only inflame the issue."
