Southern and Gatwick Express ballot

08 April 2016

As a result of a threat to impose 12 car DOO(P) working, without agreement, from 9 April on Gatwick Express, we are to ballot drivers on Southern, and Gatwick Express, for industrial action.

GTR, in a letter dated 6 April, and received today Friday 8 April, says: 'We intend to begin implementing 12 car DOO(P) operation with effect from Saturday 9 April, or shortly thereafter. We will require all drivers who have been trained on using the new Class 387s to undertake these services when instructed to do so.'

As a result of this threat to impose 12 car DOO(P) working without agreement GTR has been informed of our intention to ballot our driver members employed on Southern and Gatwick Express for industrial action.

The formal balloting process will begin as soon as possible. If you have any questions, please contact your company council representatives.
