London Overground workers to strike over pay

Over 300 RMT union members will conduct two 48-hour strikes on the London Overground in February and March.

The walkouts come in response to a pay offer that falls below inflation rates. 

This announcement follows recent disruptions caused by the ASLEF union's industrial actions affecting 17 train companies earlier in February. 

The upcoming strikes by RMT will involve security, station, revenue, and control staff within the London Overground network.

It aims to address grievances over inadequate pay raises.

RMT general secretary Mick Lynch said: "London Overground workers do an important job delivering services for TfL and supporting passengers on journeys throughout London.

"Our members are furious that they have been given a below inflation pay offer and want to see an improvement that represents the value they bring to the company.

"If this dispute cannot be resolved then RMT is more than prepared for a sustained period of industrial action to get London Overground workers the pay rise they deserve."

The strikes are scheduled for Monday, February 19, to Tuesday, February 20, and Monday, March 4, to Tuesday, March 5.
