Aslef hits back at London Midland strike claims

Aslef has hit back at a statement released by London Midland.

11 March 2011

Negotiation strategies could be called for after train driver's union Asleft hit back at claims made by London Midland.

The organisation observed that the rail company had released a press statement, which implied it was being "held to ransom" by workers' demands.

It blasted London Midland for these claims, which it believes it knows to be false.

Aslef general secretary Keith Norman commented: "London Midland appears to be looking for a scapegoat for its own incompetence. It can look elsewhere."

The union went on to observe that there are few volunteers to cover its planned walkout this Sunday (February 13th 2011) and explained that bosses have decided to drop the double-time rate it had previously used to attract workers in a similar situation two years ago.

Earlier in the week, Aslef welcomed a ruling by the Court of Appeal, which found that minor discrepancies in processes are not sufficient grounds on which to justify an injunction on industrial action.
