Negotiation strategies needed for Aslef dispute?

A dispute between train drivers' union Aslef and Arriva Trains Wales could mean negotiation strategies need to be employed.

18 February 2011

Negotiation strategies may need to be employed in the hope of resolving a dispute between train drivers' union Aslef and Arriva Trains Wales.

Members of the union have decided to go on strike on February 28th from midnight to midnight because of the company's current "failure to provide a satisfactory pay offer".

Months of negotiation between the two parties has resulted in the failure to come to an adequate agreement and it is expected further strike action will take place by Aslef members over the next few months.

A ballot of 513 train drivers revealed some 70 per cent were in support of refusing to work for the 24-hour period. However, Aslef representatives and Arriva Trains Wales will meet on Tuesday (February 22nd) in the hope of resolving the dispute through a range of negotiation strategies.

The union currently has approximately 18,500 members in the UK, with 180 separate branches representing the views and needs of train drivers throughout the country.
