RMT confirms new wave of strike action by tube drivers over imposition of rosters.
TUBE UNION RMT today confirmed a new wave of strike action by tube drivers over the outrageous imposition of rosters by London Underground bosses.
Following an overwhelming vote for action by drivers on the Metropolitan Line based at the Neasden Depot the union has announced the following programme of strikes;
All members are instructed NOT TO BOOK ON for any shifts which commence between:
11:30 hours on Thursday 20th January to 11:29 hours on Friday 21st January 2022.
11:30 hours on Thursday 10th February to 11:29 hours on Friday 11th February 2022.
RMT General Secretary Mick Lynch said;
"There's a toxic culture developing at LU which amounts to the wholesale ripping up of normal procedures and agreements and our members at Neasden have said loud and clear that enough is enough.
"I am calling on tube bosses to get a grip and stop this wholesale undermining of normal industrial relations. We remain available for talks but no one should underestimate our determination to stop this nonsense."
