RMT Calls Two Day Tube Strike

TUBE UNION RMT has today confirmed two twenty four hour strikes in the Night Tube and station jobs disputes as London Underground management, under the direction of Mayor Boris Johnson, continue to stall over the issue of work/life balance and job cuts arising from the new rosters and the Fit for the Future programme - due to come into force from the 12th September.

As a result, the executive of the union has taken the following decision:

Solid Strike Sends Clear Message To Tube Bosses And Mayor Johnson

Rock solid tube action sends out clearest possible message that issues must now be addressed.

RMT General Secretary Mick Cash said;

"The action is absolutely solid on London Underground ‎across all unions, all grades and all lines and depots. That sends out the clearest possible message to Boris Johnson and his tube bosses that they must now take the staff grievances seriously and get back into genuine and meaningful talks.
