Tube drivers on the Jubilee Line are to be balloted for strike action over what rail union RMT described as “unfair” treatment by management.
Staff working out of the Stratford and Greenwich depots will vote on whether or not to take industrial action in a dispute over “poor” facilities, removal of benefits and a “lack of support” from management.
RMT has said it will be looking to co-ordinate balloting and any subsequent action with fellow drivers’ union ASLEF who are also in dispute on these issues.
RMT general secretary Bob Crow said: “RMT will begin immediate preparations for a ballot for industrial action and no one should underestimate the anger amongst Jubilee Line staff at the moment. RMT remains available for talks aimed at resolving this dispute.”
