RMT Press Office:
RMT members working as revenue protection inspectors on Arriva Rail London are being balloted for strike action from today.
Workers are being asked whether they want to take strike action over a collective grievance not being adequately dealt with and the employer refusing to follow the right procedures in the collective bargaining agreement with the union.
The ballot will run from today and close on Tuesday 11th July.
RMT general secretary Mick Lynch said: "Revenue inspectors have had enough of Arriva Rail London not taking their concerns seriously and not respecting the collective bargaining process with RMT.
"Now they will decide whether they want to take strike action across London Overground.
"Management need to take their workers concerns seriously and they need to understand RMT will back its members every step of the way."
