Fund Transport for London

Video: Jared Wood explains all-grades Tube strike taking place on 21 June

RMT National Executive Committee representative for London Transport, Jared Wood, gives a rundown of where we are with the dispute over Jobs, Pensions & Conditions.

Jared outlines some pivotal moments which have lead us to this point in the dispute and what we can do to show a strong message, by taking action on the 21st of June 2022.

4000 striking workers shut down Tube

4,000 striking station and revenue control staff have shutdown London Underground in a show of strength to oppose pension attacks and job cuts.

Trains have remained in depots across the network and RMT activists are reporting huge attendances at picket lines despite heavy rain across the capital.

600 station staff jobs will be lost if TfL (Transport for London) plans go through and RMT members face huge detrimental changes to their pensions and working conditions.

Overtime works against us

Why working overtime works against us…

The sudden sharp increase in station closures demonstrates what we always knew; the job requires more station staff, not fewer. 

LU has made clear its intention to get shot of around 600 CSA posts. Talks between RMT and LU have gone nowhere but the strength of the strikes on 1st/3rd March forced a partial (temporary) climbdown on pensions and now LU is looking to take on a grade or a function at a time.

If a Tube strike costs London £50m a day, then it would follow that we generate £18,250,000,000 a year - that's over 18 billion pound!

Watch Jared Wood, our National Executive Committee representative, discuss that and the importance of voting YES YES in our re-ballot.
