Following rejection of our pay offer, Unite the union balloted its members and has notified the management of London Transit of the intention to proceed with industrial action. This is expected to take place in November and December. These strikes will cause inconvenience to the public and further loss of earnings for our hard-working employees.
London Transit is extremely disappointed by this decision. We have made a competitive and fair offer, worth 8.3% in total, aligned to our commitment to protect drivers and engineers from inflation and reward their efforts. We have also reviewed the Union’s demands with regard to terms and conditions and have put forward proposals we believe should be satisfactory to all parties.
Union representatives declined our most recent invitation to continue discussions on this year’s pay round. Despite this, we remain ready to engage at any point and very much hope that union representatives will meet us and that strikes can be averted.
Note for our passengers
We anticipate that all services operated by London Transit will be impacted with little or no service on the affected routes on Friday 10th November and Monday 13th November.
