Get behind striking train drivers

Train drivers in Aslef union are striking in 16 different companies on different days between 2 and 8 December. And striking workers are also carrying out an overtime ban between 1 and 9 December.

Tory transport secretary Mark Harper has lied, saying that “an offer is on the table”. But this was already rejected by train drivers back in April!

Aslef’s Mick Whelan says that the “offer – a land grab for all our terms and conditions – was made in the full knowledge that it couldn’t, and wouldn’t, be accepted.

“We have received overwhelming mandates, on enormous turnouts, for more industrial action! We will continue to take industrial action until the train companies – and/or the government – sit down and negotiate”.
