Union says company should be under no illusions about union’s determination to fight against the detrimental changes

DLRRMT members working on the Docklands Light Railway are next week to take strike action over  enforced changes to their terms and conditions.

They will walk out between 4am on January 28th and 4am on January 30th.

RMT general secretary Mick Cash said: “Following the feedback from well-attended branch meetings and the ballot result, the company should be under no illusions about RMT’s members  determination to fight against detrimental changes to terms and conditions.

“These include secondments without members’ consent or agreement, new and inferior policies on maternity & paternity leave, longer waiting period for entitlement to full sick pay and a failure by the company to deal with a list of outstanding health & safety issues as well as undermining the efforts of RMT safety reps.

“RMT has no doubts that our members will stand together and support this strike action as they continue the demonstration of unity and solidarity shown by all in this dispute so far.

“As always RMT remains available for talks with the company to resolve this dispute.”
