ISS workers to take strike action on DLR

ISS workers to take strike action on DLR

23 February 2023

RMT Press Office:

Contracted out staff working for ISS on the Docklands Light Railway will take 48 hours strike action from Friday.

Cleaners, security, revenue protection and travel safe staff will walk out after rejecting an insulting pay offer of 1.8%. 

RMT which represents the workers have highlighted the fact ISS staff on the DLR are underpaid compared to others on TfL performing equivalent roles. 

On top of poor pay, ISS staff have so far not been told whether they will get access to the free travel facility. 

This is despite the fact London Mayor Sadiq Khan having already promised all contracted out staff would get free travel across TfL. 

RMT General Secretary Mick Lynch said: “The level arrogance on display from ISS is staggering. 

“This multimillion pound company already pays staff poorly and with inflation running at over 10%, an offer of 1.8% shows what contempt they hold their staff in. 

“RMT will be relentless in its representation of contracted out workers who are some of the most exploited in the transport system. 

“This strike action is a demonstration of the strength of our members resolve to win pay justice. 

“Ultimately Mayor Sadiq Khan needs to end the injustice of exploitation of contracted out staff by bringing these workers back in house as soon as possible.”


There Will be a demonstration at City Hall on Friday 24 February 11am
