United Kingdom -Total breakdown of industrial relations on SERCO DLR -January 16, 2014

Members of the transport trade union RMT on the SERCO Docklands Light Railway have voted by massive majorities of more than nine to one for both strike action and action short of a strike in a dispute over a wide range of issues which amount to a total breakdown in industrial relations between the union and the employer. The issues at the heart of the dispute include stalling on talks over the 2014 pay award, abuse of the disciplinary and attendance procedures, the use of agency and contract staff to undermine jobs and conditions, and failures on training, development and grade progression that are limiting staff opportunities.
