Trade union members at Transport for London (TfL) are to strike today after the RMT union accused management of refusing to talk about the breakdown in industrial relations at the company.
Around 230 members of the RMT union from across the company, including staff at the London Transport Museum, revenue control inspectors, bus controllers, staff instructors and call centre operators will take 24 hours of action.
The union said staff had several issues with the company, including:
the introduction of a new attendance and disciplinary a code
failure to consult call-centre staff over a move to a temporary new base
the redundancy of museum staff
failure to resolve outstanding safety issues concerning revenue control inspectors.
RMT general secretary Bob Crow said: “TfL will achieve nothing by burying its head in the sand – our members have genuine grievances which must ultimately be addressed and resolved.”
