Train drivers will consider new deal

Issue No. 2095

The Aslef train drivers’ union suspended four days of strikes at South West Trains set for Monday to Thursday of this week after the union and management agreed a new deal.

The dispute arose from a breakdown in negotiations over pay and hours. Some 73 percent of Aslef members on South West Trains voted in favour of industrial action.

The union’s executive will consider the draft agreement at its meeting in mid-April. Aslef members will then be balloted over the deal.
