28 November 2016

Tuesday 13 and Wednesday 14 December
Friday 16 December
Monday 9 to Saturday 14 January

In addition, drivers will not work any non-contractual overtime from Tuesday 6 December.‘We have done our level best to try and reach a sensible, workable compromise with Southern in the interests of passengers as well as staff,’ said general secretary Mick Whelan. ‘We have always been happy to talk to the company, and we have always believed it is, or should be, possible to do a deal – as we did with ScotRail in Scotland –­ but it takes two to tango and the company has not been prepared to negotiate. The company – and I see the DfT’s fingerprints all over this dispute, it’s as if the DfT is the ventriloquist and Southern the ventroliquist’s dummy – doesn’t want to talk, it wants to bully; it doesn’t want to discuss, it wants to impose. Because it doesn’t care about passenger safety, only about profits for shareholders.’
