RMT in strike negotiations

Rail union meets Tube Lines to discuss possible tube and DLR strikes

22 June 2010

RMT is negotiating with Tube Lines to prevent possible strike action on London's travel network.

Staff at underground maintenance firm Tube Lines plan to strike for 48 hours over jobs while DLR workers will begin their own industrial action over pay for 72-hours on Wednesday.

RMT general secretary Bob Crow said: "It is clear that if we cannot reach agreement over the Tube Lines dispute around jobs, pay and conditions that it will have a major impact and that there's a real danger that Tube officials will take serious risks with safety to try and run trains."

Tube Lines employees are due to begin their two day walkout from 7pm on Wednesday evening in a dispute over jobs, pay and conditions.

DLR workers are currently in disagreement with Serco Docklands over pay and could form picket lines from 4am on Wednesday morning.

Transport for London has previously stated that the dispute was only between Tube Lines and RMT, while London Mayor Boris Johnson also refused to meet union officials.
