Tube Union RMT confirmed today that following a ballot of members across London Underground in a dispute over jobs, services and safety that recorded a massive vote for both strike action and action short of a strike members are instructed to take action as follows:
The 4th issue of 'Fit for the Future: Trains' was produced prior to the second planned 'Every Job Matters' industrial action was suspended. It has an article on the success of our initial strike - which since publication is a view that has been proven correct. There is also an article about Mark Harding, an RMT activist arrested on the picket line, and several picket line photographs.
A meeting is being held to organise the 'Defend Mark Harding campaign. Mark was arrested off of a picket line and held in a cell for 13 hours, before receiving draconian bail conditions following an allegation from an apparent strike breaker.
The meeting will be for RMT members only but we welcome all support for the campaign.
