Ruislip London Underground depot workers to strike

LONDON UNDERGROUND (LU) track maintenance workers will down their tools tomorrow in an ongoing row over pay.

RMT members working on train maintenance and storage at the LU depot in Ruislip, west London, are striking following bosses’ “abject failure to resolve the dispute.”

The depot looks after LU’s engineering trains and it provides engineering and haulage services around the clock for the Tube network.

RMT general secretary Mick Cash said that workers were “angry and frustrated” that negotiations have come to nothing, accusing LU of “kicking back at every turn” at union efforts to resolve the dispute.

He said that the only proposals tabled by the company so far “have been on a self-financing basis involving job losses and productivity measures, which is why we have been left with no choice but to press on with a campaign of strike action in the pursuit of justice for our members.”

Workers will strike for 24 hours from 7am tomorrow, and then from 7pm on Friday evening until 7am Saturday, and then from 7am to 7pm on Sunday.
