RMT forces DLR bosses back

Transport union RMT has called off 48-hours of strike action on the Docklands Light Railway (DLR), due to start on 28 January, after the employers agreed to all the union’s demands.

The dispute with DLR operators Keolis/Amey was over the outsourcing of jobs and activities, new human resource policies that would have undermined working conditions, and the undermining of the role of RMT Health and Safety representatives.

All these proposals have now been withdrawn as a result of the threatened strike action, after a 95% ‘yes’ vote for action on a 70% turnout.
