DLR workers to stage series of strikes in new year

Workers on London's Docklands Light Railway are to stage a series of strikes in the new year in a long-running dispute over issues including the use of agency staff.

Members of the RMT union will walk out for between 24 hours and four days following a previous stoppage last month which disrupted travel in the capital.

The union is in dispute with operators Keolis Amey over claims of bullying, breaches of agreements and "abuses" of the use of agency staff.

RMT members on Keolis Amey Docklands have already shown their anger and determination with rock solid strike action but they are still not being listened to and that leaves us with no option but to schedule blocks of industrial action early next year. Our members on DLR are furious at the way that Keolis Amey are trying to bulldoze through some of the worst working practices and conditions that we associate with the operations of the most cheapskate and anti-union companies in the transport sector. We will not sit back and allow this aggressive and bullying culture to develop on this key part of London's transport network.
