Strike action solidly supported again this evening in Night Tube fight for workplace justice
TUBE UNION RMT said that strike action in a fight for workplace justice and to stop the ripping up of Night Tube agreements and working arrangements that would wreck the work life balance of drivers is being solidly supported by members rock again tonight .
RMT General Mick Lynch said;
"The RMT tube strike action tonight is being solidly supported again in all depots as our members fight for progressive working practices and workplace justice.
"We have made repeated offers to resolve this dispute including in talks this week and the public will understand that the widespread impact on services this weekend is solely down to the management failure to respond positively to our proposals.
"It's time for the management and the Mayor to recognise and address the anger of their staff at the imposition of these damaging and unacceptable working practices.
"Tonight's disruption is entirely down to tube bosses bulldozing through arrangements that abolished the Night Tube driver grade, lumping everyone into a central pool where they can be shunted about at will in a drive to cut costs.
"We've written to the Mayor again today and Sadiq Khan needs to face up to his responsibilities and pressure LU for a fair and just settlement. The Mayor and his officials need to recognise our determination to defend progressive and family friendly working practices. We remain available for talks. "
