RMT Northern Line drivers balloted for strike action

RMT tube drivers, operating out of the Northern Line’s Morden Traincrew Depot, are to be balloted for strike action following the dismissal of a colleague in what the union says is a “blatant and clear cut case of victimisation.”

The ballot will open today, 30th October, and will close on Tuesday 18th November.
 
RMT General Secretary Mick Cash said:
 
“RMT has been pointing out for some time now that a new culture of harassment and misuse of procedures is rife on London Underground at the moment and the union will not stand back while individuals are fitted-up and picked off as has happened in this particular case on the Northern Line.
 
“RMT members are well aware that the only defence that they have in these circumstances, when the internal machinery has been exhausted, is the unity and solidarity in the workplace.
 
“RMT remains available for talks as we seek justice in this blatant and clear cut case of victimisation.”
