Security staff and cleaners on London's Docklands Light Railway are to stage a 48-hour strike in a dispute over pay and conditions.
Members of the Rail, Maritime and Transport union employed by facilities company Interserve will walk out from 5.30am tomorrow after voting by 4-1 in favour of action.
Docklands Light Railway workers are to be balloted over strike action due to disputes over pay and conditions. Members of the Rail, Maritime and Transport union will vote in the coming weeks, with a result expected on May 12.
There are two separate disputes involving this year's pay deal for directly employed staff and another row over wages for employees at the facilities company Interserve.
RMT general secretary Mick Cash said: "Our reps are in no doubt that we need to send a clear message to management that staff are prepared to fight to demand decent rewards and recognition, a safe working environment, decent working conditions and will not be forced into accepting inferior pay arrangements."
A 48-hour strike planned by workers on London's Docklands Light Railway from tomorrow has been suspended.
The Rail, Maritime and Transport (RMT) union said talks with the DLR operators had secured an agreement. Workers were due to walk out from tomorrow morning in a dispute over outsourcing and new human resources policies.
- One of the strikes will coincide with a planned walkout by London Underground workers in a separate dispute over the closure of Tube ticket offices
- DLR workers, who are employed by Serco, will also ban overtime for 24 hours from January 31 having voted overwhelmingly for industrial action
- The RMT said there had been a "total breakdown" in industrial relations, while pay negotiations had stalled
Workers on London's Docklands Light Railway will stage two 48-hour strikes in a dispute over pay. Members of the RMT Union will strike for 48 hours from 4.30am on January 29 and again from February 4.
Workers on London's Docklands Light Railway have voted to go on strike in a row over pay and industrial relations. The RMT Union says members backed industrial action by 9-1, over a series of issues including this year's pay award, the use of agency staff and disciplinary procedures.
A Docklands Light Railway inspector has been punched repeatedly after asking a woman to take her feet off the seats. The assault happened on a train between Lewisham and Bank stations on 25 September. The inspector initially asked two passengers to remove their dog from the seat.
He then asked a woman to take her feet off the chair. The pair were asked to leave the train at Elverson Road when they failed to produce a ticket. Police are trying to trace a woman seen on CCTV.
