The Central line is facing chaos as are walking out in the latest strike.
Drivers on the Central Line are planning to walk out after the dismissal of a fellow driver for “gross misconduct”.
This means we should expect a reduced service on the line throughout December 24.
Organised by the RMT union, the strike is in response to the sacking of a driver who was found to have put others at risk after passing a red signal.
“This dispute concerns the dismissal of a Central line driver for gross misconduct following a serious breach of our safety procedures while operating a train,” says Peter McNaught, Operations Director for the Central line.
“We carried out a full and fair disciplinary process which found that the driver failed to take the appropriate action having passed a red signal, potentially putting the safety of others at risk. We urge the union to withdraw its action and not cause disruption to Londoners.”
