RMT Press Office:
RAIL UNION RMT has instructed members working for contractors Keolis Amey Docklands (KAD) on the Docklands Light Railway (DLR) not to book on for any shifts from midnight tonight Monday 6th November 2023 and take 48-hour strike action until 23:59 hours on Wednesday 8th November 2023.
Members have already been carrying out an overtime and rest day working ban in pursuit of an improved pay offer. KADs contract with TfL, for operating the DLR, provides for RPI indexed increases in its funding yet KAD’s staff have been offered a pay rise that is less than half the rate of increase in the RPI.
RMT general secretary Mick Lynch called on the company to stand by its commitments rather than holding back on the pay up lift that staff deserved.
“RMT remains available for meaningful talks to reach a settlement,” he said.
