RMT Station Staff working at eleven Tube stations between Plaistow and Upminster on London Underground’s District Line and at Elephant and Castle, Charing Cross and Lambeth North on the Bakerloo are to strike for 24 hours from 04:30 tomorrow, Friday August 22 in two separate disputes.

More than 90 staff on the East Ham group voted by a margin of more than 20 to one to take action over a breakdown of industrial relations sparked by local management ignoring procedures, the victimisation and harassment of staff and union reps and the sacking of station assistant Sarah Hutchins who had taken time off for pregnancy-related illnesses and after being assaulted at work.
