Another threat of strike action on the DLR

For the second time this year workers on the Docklands Light Railway are to be balloted over strike action as a result of two ongoing disputes. The RMT are balloting their members over pay and conditions and this includes both staff who are directly employed by the Docklands Light Railway and also those employed by facilities company Interserve. Mick Cash, the RMT General Secretary, commented: “The union will not sit back while core issues on pay and working conditions are left unresolved. Our reps are in no doubt that we need to send a clear message to management that staff are prepared to fight to demand decent rewards and recognition, a safe working environment, decent working conditions and will not be forced into accepting inferior pay arrangements.” The results of the ballot will be revealed on 12th May.
