TSSA holds strike ballot over new night Tube service

1 June 2015

A third rail union, the TSSA, is to hold a strike ballot over pay and the start of the new Night Tube service in September.

It is balloting 1600 members at London Underground over a two year pay offer which falls below inflation and does not reward staff working through the night.

Manuel Cortes, union general secretary, said: "Boris Johnson is rushing to get this new service introduced before he quits City Hall for the Commons full time next year.

"We want a properly negotiated agreement which rewards our members whilst also guaranteeing the safety of the travelling public at all times on the busiest tube network in the world."

The union has rejected a two year offer - 0.75% this year and RPI next year - which comes with a "no strike" deal attached.
