    It was the guard who were striking because they were being replaced by a mirror, wasn't it? The drivers obviously need extra money for the trouble of having to use the mirror.

    That's the sad part, they weren't replacing the guards (or at least not yet), they were changing their role from door duty to walk along the train assisting, inspecting etc. Granted DOO trains would open the door for sacking the guards eventually, but the end deal is essentially the same. So the whole thing was just a pretext for extortion with 100'000 passengers used as hostages by the greedy tulips.

    "As part of the Aslef deal, Southern must aim to have a second safety-trained person on every DOO train."

    Can you not read?

    I can but not very well, tbh.

    Anyway I digress - this is the bit that stuck out when I saw the pictures "Members voted by 79.1% to accept the resolution which includes a five-year pay increase worth 28.5%." So what's to do about staffing ?

    This was the original proposal - to keep the guards on board the train and on payroll. It wasn't automatically sacking the guards in favor of DOO. Unions claimed that such arrangement is unsafe.

    After inflicting misery to 100'000s in the course of 18+ months they no longer find it as unsafe.

    What changed their mind?

    Aaaaah....
