Clock Ticking On London Underground Industrial Action Ballot

6 June 2019

TSSA General Secretary Manuel Cortes has warned the "clock is ticking at speed" towards an industrial action ballot after the collapse of London Underground pay talks

TSSA officials met Tube bosses yesterday (Weds 5th June) who refused to move on a two-year pay deal which had previously been rejected. Cortes has now called for the matter to go to arbitration at ACAS.

Manuel Cortes said: “Our Negotiating Team met with London Underground and unfortunately the Company did not propose any improvements to the revised offer that our reps had already unanimously rejected.

“As a result we reiterated to Tube bosses that we are already in dispute and the clock is ticking at speed towards an industrial action ballot.

“Our Negotiating Team has suggested that we now meet under the auspices of the Advisory, Conciliation and Arbitration Service (ACAS) to see whether the big gap which exists between ourselves and London Underground can be bridged.

“In the meantime, we need to continue making preparations for an industrial action ballot.”
