The result of the ASLEF ballot is in, 1810 (98.7%) voted for industrial action, 24 (1.3%) voted against with an 81% turnout. Including those that didn't vote that is 80% of ASLEF members at LUL supporting the union's decision, not even Boris can complain that it's a minority dictating to the rest. Perhaps now management will start negotiating seriously so we can get this sorted out without us having to lose a day's pay or causing any disruption to the punters.
We're not alone, drivers up at ScotRail have rejected their pay offer of 1.1% plus it seems there are ballots going on at TransPennine Express and Tyne & Wear Metro; the train drivers are revolting (said in a Kenneth Williams type voice).
