Transport bosses say it’s “unlikely” any DLR services will run during a 48 hour strike due to be held this week by members of the RMT union.
Members voted to hold a 48 hour strike after, the union says, Keolis Amey Docklands tried to impose “inferior policies on maternity and paternity leave” and transfer staff to other duties without their agreement.
The walkout will last from 4:00am on Wednesday 28 January to 3.59am on Friday 30 January.
Last week Keolis Amey Docklands said it would run “as many trains as possible” during the walk-out but today Transport for London warned it is “unlikely that any DLR services will operate during these times.”
Rory O’Neill, TfL’s Director of DLR, said: “If the strike goes ahead, KeolisAmey Docklands say that it is unlikely that any DLR services will run.
“TfL bus, Tube and rail services will be operating as normal, extra buses will run on key routes and staff will be available to help.
“Customers are advised to use our website to plan ahead. As other TfL services are likely to be busier than normal, as ever, we ask customers who are able to consider avoiding the busiest times if they can.”
