Picc fleet workers vote for strikes

Submitted by Tubeworker on Tue, 07/04/2017 - 14:27

Fleet workers on the Picc have returned a thumping majority for strikes in their fight for permanent jobs, easily clearing the thresholds of the Trade Union Act.

144 workers were balloted, with 121 (84%) returning their ballot papers. 115 voted for strikes, and 119 for action short of strikes. Six workers voted against strikes, and two against action short. That's an 80% majority for action!

The dispute aims to force LU/TubeLines to make all new jobs permanent, and abandon their current plans to recruit new staff on two-year fixed-terms contracts.

Congratulations to RMT reps and activists on Pic fleet for a great ballot campaign and an excellent result. See you on the picket lines!
