RMT demands reversal of TfL cuts

The RMT have repeated demands for  the reversal of TFL and Network Rail cuts follokwing this morning's transport chaos.

General Secretary Mick Cash said;

"The state of transport services right across London this morning serves as the clearest possible warning to this Government that their policy of hacking back the budgets of both Network Rail and Transport for London risks dragging tube and rail in the capital city into permanent chaos.

‎"RMT salutes the engineers who are working flat out to get services back up and running this morning and we await detailed information. However, one thing is certain, if you cut back on budgets and the maintenance and renewals schedules you are storing up major problems for the future. That fact must not be ignored. 

"This situation cannot go on. RMT has warned repeatedly that hacking back on maintenance and renewals leaves vital services on a knife edge. The Government should reverse their cuts programme and invest in the future while there is still time."
