DLR commuters will face disruption in 2016 as workers are set to stage 17 strikes.

Rail, Maritime and Transport (RMT) workers are protesting a “creeping culture” of bullying, the use of agency staff and “breaches of agreements, procedures and the recognition framework”.

Here are the strike dates:

24-hour walk-outs will be be staged on January 11, January 13, and February 11.

There will be 48-hour strikes starting on February 8, March 7 and March 10.

Workers will strike for four days at a time from March 21 and again from March 29.

RMT general secretary Mick Cash said: “RMT members on Keolis Amey Docklands have already shown their anger and determination with rock solid strike action but they are still not being listened to and that leaves us with no option but to schedule blocks of industrial action early next year.

“Our members on DLR are furious at the way that Keolis Amey are trying to bulldoze through some of the worst working practices and conditions that we associate with the operations of the most cheapskate and anti-union companies in the transport sector.

“We will not sit back and allow this aggressive and bullying culture to develop on this key part of London’s transport network.”
