Bad news for commuters in Ealing borough as ASLEF announce a Central Line strike this coming Friday. It follows a Piccadilly Line strike last week.
The union is blaming a breakdown in communication.
Whether TfL will be able to operate a limited service at the extremities of the line remains to be seen.
Finn Brennan, ASLEF’s organiser on the Underground states:
“The strike on the Central line is the result of management’s failure to deal with the issues our reps have raised regarding service control problems affecting our members; abuse of the attendance at work procedure; breach of agreements regarding managers driving trains; abuse of the case conference procedure; harsh and unfair use of the disciplinary procedure; and imposition of new and unsafe ‘flash and dash’ working practices.”
We await comment from TfL.
