RMT demands action from LUL over rising levels of violent assaults

TUBE UNION RMT has demanded action from tube bosses over rising levels of violent assaults after another horrific incident at Warren Street Station on Friday ‎‎afternoon.  

The incident, which included severe levels  of physical violence and the suspect forcing his way into the control room and continuing his assault, is the latest in a line of similar violent acts against tube workers . 

Previous incidents include a well-documented and horrific assault at West Ham last year . RMT has been demanding assurances on the safety and security of staff in control areas but Friday's shocking events raise significant union concerns once again .

RMT Senior Assistant General Secretary Mick Lynch said;

“Friday afternoon has seen yet another serious assault on tube workers , this time at Warren Street, and the level and frequency of violent incidents appears to show no sign of slowing down. 

"After this latest assault, and a serious breach of staff safety and security in working areas, LUL and the BTP need to get a grip of this issue and provide our members with the safe and secure working environment  they rightly deserve “ 

“RMT will continue to mount a high profile campaign to press LUL and the BTP over this critical issue. “
