Docklands Light Rail workers win concessions

Issue No. 2212

The threat of strike action by workers on the Docklands Light Railway system in east London has won an improved offer from management.

RMT union members planned to strike on Friday of last week over the company’s failure to make adequate payments for the increased workload and responsibility after a third carriage was introduced to trains.

But their Serco Docklands employers offered a £600 payment and said a dispute over part-time positions will be resolved in consultation with the RMT.

The union then suspended the action and workers will now vote on the offer.
