Transport Union Staff Commence 15-Day Strike Over Workplace Culture Dispute

Employees of the Transport and Salaried Staff Association (TSSA) have commenced strike action today (Tuesday 4 June), initially walking out for one day. The strike action will escalate by one additional day each week until 25 June, culminating in nine consecutive days of industrial action. This totals 15 days of strike action due to a dispute with their employer.

The conflict centres on issues of workplace bullying and harassment, financial mismanagement, and the failure to adhere to policies and procedures designed to foster a better and more inclusive workplace culture.

Andrew Harden, GMB London Region Organiser, commented:

“The leadership of TSSA failed to respond to concerns raised by GMB members at an ACAS meeting. Now staff have been forced to take unprecedented strike action, 15 days of action they feel necessary to push their trade union employer to take their dispute seriously.

“The strike action will severely impact the TSSA union’s ability to service its members effectively. TSSA members should ask why the Union’s staff feel compelled to take strike action against management who should understand the role and ethics of the trade union movement.

“TSSA GMB Staff representatives remain willing to attend a further meeting at ACAS with the employer to facilitate meaningful talks and resolve this dispute.”
