Night Tube Drivers Win

Night Tube drivers have won their fight with management for a fair chance at moving into full-time jobs.

They had previously been locked in by a ridiculous rule that they had to stay put for 18 months, fifty per cent longer than the standard one year waiting time to move. As usual, management remained intransigent until strike action loomed, with NT drivers delivering a whopping vote in the ballot - at which point management suddenly saw the injustice in the 18-month bar and agreed to relax it.

The dispute resolution has put Night Tube drivers on a level par with full-time station staff applying to be full-time drivers. This is good news, as we did not want to go from one grade being unfairly disadvantaged to another being unfairly disadvantaged instead.
