  8. BreakingTrain drivers' overtime ban suspended

    Southern trains and passengers

    A train drivers’ overtime ban on Southern rail which was due to start on Sunday 4 June has been suspended for two weeks, according to the Aslef union.

    They say it is to allow time for negotiations to find a resolution to the long-running dispute over driver-only operation and to "allow all outstanding issues to be discussed".

    The union says it will also sit down with the company to try to resolve a range of issues including drivers’ terms and conditions, industrial relations and pay.

    Mick Whelan, general secretary of Aslef, the train drivers’ union, said: ‘We met Southern today, ahead of our overtime ban, which was due to start on Sunday.

    "Industrial action is always the last resort; we would much rather talk, and negotiate, than take industrial action.

    "The company has indicated that it is prepared to negotiate with us on a range of outstanding issues and, therefore, we have suspended our overtime ban.

    "We now have a fortnight to try and find a resolution which will work for passengers, for staff, and for the company, too."

    The areas worst affected are Friston, East Dean and Jevington, and bottled water is available from East Dean village hall and the Eight Bells pub in Jevington.
