Southern strike: Aslef drivers vote 87% in favour of action

The UK's biggest rail union has voted overwhelmingly to strike in a dispute over driver-only trains

Members of the drivers' union Aslef are accusing Southern railway of wanting to impose changes rather than reach an agreement. 

The dispute is separate to long-running row between Southern and the Rail, Maritime and Transport (RMT) union over changes to the role of conductors. 

Aslef said Southern had "dug its heels in" over the changes. 

'Disappointment' over Southern rail planned strike action

Govia Thameslink Railway's chief executive officer Charles Horton has said he is "disappointed" over further planned strike action by Southern railway drivers.

Aslef union members have voted overwhelmingly to strike over driver-only trains.

Responding to Aslef's ballot result, Mr Horton said driver-only trains were "perfectly safe".

We believe this ballot was wholly unnecessary and unjustified in the first place and we're disappointed that the union is now contemplating industrial action. It’s perfectly safe for the driver to have sole responsibility for the operation of a modern train, and that's how a third of the trains up and down the country - with the full agreement and support of Aslef - already operate today. The travelling public has already suffered months of misery and hardship as a result of the RMT's pointless series of strikes. We urge Aslef to get round the table with us to continue our talks and resolve their dispute without causing further unnecessary grief to passengers.
