DLR workers walk out

Issue No. 2478

Hundreds of workers on London’s Docklands Light Railway (DLR) walked out for 48 hours on Tuesday of this week.

Talks with DLR operators Keolis Amey broke down last week.

The workers’ RMT union said the dispute is over “a range of serious unresolved issues that are wrecking industrial relations”. Over 92 percent voted to strike.

One rail worker said, “Keolis Amey have been on the railway for ten months and we’ve had three ballots.

“Something is clearly wrong with this employer. Their attitude is, they run the railway.”
