South West Trains Strikes

It looks like ASLEF are going ahead with three days of strike action on South West Trains’ services. I went to their website to look for an mention of it but could find none. The same was true of the RMT, who are also taking part. Meanwhile, South West Trains have put up notices in stations indicating that ASLEF has announced these strikes because SWT managers drove trains to alleviate recent strike action. As SWT put this, ‘we think this is good customer service’. Well, quite. I would support any measures by SWT to reduce union membership amongst their employees if this is what results.
