Aslef refusing to enter strike negotiations?
Representatives from the union Aslef have refused to engage in talks with London Underground, it has been claimed.
The union Aslef may have been refusing to enter into strike negotiations to resolve a row that has erupted after London Underground (LU) said it would not be paying its employees any more money for working on Boxing Day.
LU's chief operating officer Howard Collins stated the organisation has an agreement in place with all of the trade unions concerning arrangements made with staff on bank holidays, which includes December 26th.
"To tear that agreement up and seek to disrupt the festive period for Londoners in this way is just cynical," he stated.
Mr Collins stated representatives from Aslef have refused to enter into talks to discuss its proposals for its members to be awarded triple time and a day in lieu.
Earlier this week, the Press and Journal reported that teachers in Aberdeen may be about to engage in industrial action for the first time in more than 20 years in protest at compulsory redundancies being made.
