ASLEF members on the Jubilee Line have voted for strike action in a dispute over the imposition of new rosters which increase the number of Saturday shifts drivers are required to work. This breaks a commitment made as part of the 2015/16 pay agreement to maintain the same percentage of weekend rest days as the service expands.
Members voted by 84.2 % in favour of strike action. The ASLEF Executive Committee has decided to call strike action for duties booking on between 00:01 and 23:59 on Wednesday 6th June 2018 and Thursday 14th June at all depots on the Jubilee Line.
It is clear that London Underground management hoped that members would not be prepared to take action, giving them a green light to igno
re agreements in the future. But drivers saw through the management propaganda and have shown they prepared to stand up to protect agreements.
Despite the rhetoric from City Hall about wanting to work with Trade Unions to avoid conflict, senior management at LU have ignored every offer to sit down and discuss this issue with us over the last months. the responsibility for the disruption these strike will cause rests squarely with them
Separately members at Acton Town district line will strike on the same dates in the ongoing dispute over the failure to stick to the agreed SPAD policy.
