Industrial action

When negotiations fail, RMT members take action

Video: Night Tube strike update

On the eve of the first of several proposed Night Tube strikes, Regional Organiser John Leach updates members.

In the video, John explains: "After 6 months of trying to explain and persuade London Underground management that you cannot abolish 200 positions, rip up an agreement that protects our members work life balance, and their right to not have to do these {Night Tube} duties if they can't, we have to stand up and be counted."

Strike action called for Queen's Jubilee

Tube staff will take strike action at Euston and Green Park stations on June 3, if action is not taken against a bullying manager.

RMT members at both stations have suffered years of intimidation, bullying and unjustified sackings of colleagues by a manager who has created a toxic atmosphere in the workplace.

Strike action is set for June 3 which coincides with the Queen's Jubilee and will last 24 hours.

This dispute is due to the consistent unacceptable bullying and intimidating behaviour from management and despite further efforts from your RMT Reps to make progress on these issues, they are facing total intransigence from LUL.
