Tube Lines, Thales: Prepare to strike!

Submitted by Tubeworker on Wed, 04/15/2015 - 01:30

RMT members at Tube Lines have overwhelmingly rejected a company proposal to remove rostered rest days. The union is now preparing a strike ballot.

At Thales (one of the companies which provides and maintains various technical infrastructure to LU), workers have voted by 80% for strikes, and action-short-of-strikes, in a dispute against potential job losses and propose roster changes.

Reps from Tube Lines and Thales should discuss with reps and activists from elsewhere across LU to work out the best ways of linking up and mutually reinforcing our ongoing fights.
