Industrial Docklands Light Railway workers to strike again after relations ‘breakdown’

MORE strikes are set to hit the Docklands Light Railway after a “breakdown” in relations between workers and bosses.

Cleaners, security staff and travel safe officers employed by contractor ISS said today there had been “no constructive progress” since their strike on New Year’s Eve. 

Rail union RMT said bosses had failed to hold meaningful pay talks, or provide a proper response to the union’s pay claim.

They will now walk out for 48 hours from 5.30am on February 1.

This will be followed by industrial action short of strike. 

RMT general secretary Mick Cash said: “We are supporting our members’ further strike action in a bid to force management to properly adhere to the agreed negotiating machineries and stop trying to impose fundamental changes to working conditions.

“RMT reps have continually chased management to resolve the dispute but the company are blatantly ignoring the union’s concerns.”
