Tube workers set to strike on NYE

RMT signals and line control staff on London Underground will strike on New Year’s Eve and January 4 unless ‘significant progress’ is made at today’s talks in the four-year dispute over pay rates, pay structures, hours and conditions.

Members voted for action by 186 (93.5 per cent) to 13.

“Our members have today made it absolutely clear that after four years waiting for London Underground to sort out this mess they have finally run out of patience,” RMT general secretary Bob Crow said.

“The RMT executive has therefore today agreed that, unless significant progress is made at today’s talks, our signals andline control members will strike for 24 hours on New Year’s Eve and again on January 4,” he said.
