Docklands Light Railway strike underway

A strike is underway impacting DLR services today (Tuesday 7 November) and tomorrow.

Transport for London state that a limited service is running between Canning Town and Beckton and Woolwich Arsenal and Poplar.

UPDATE: All services have now ceased.

The RMT state the dispute is around wages claiming that “KoelisAmey Dockland’s (which operate the service) contract with TfL, for operating the DLR, provides for RPI indexed increases in its funding yet KAD’s staff have been offered a pay rise that is less than half the rate of increase in the RPI.”

Transport for London state it’s not to do with them but a matter for KAD and RMT. Glynn Barton, TfL’s Chief Operating Officer, said: “I’m sorry for any disruption this strike action causes if it goes ahead, but it’s not too late for the RMT to call off these strikes and come to an agreement with our operator, KeolisAmey Docklands, and allow our customers to travel easily.”

While services are currently running on part of the network, they could stop running early.

Other sections of the network are expected to be busier. Just as well there’s further problems on the Elizabeth line this afternoon.
