FA Cup final Tube strike is on as bosses refuse to give no-victimisation guarantee
Strike action on the Tube next week is to go ahead after London Underground bosses refused to give a guarantee of no victimisation of RMT members.
More than 1,000 RMT members will take action for three days, starting on Friday, against wholesale cuts to train preparation, inspection and maintenance. There will be a protest at City Hall on Thursday at 9am.
RMT general secretary Mick Cash said: “We are angry and frustrated that instead of talking seriously about the train inspection and preparation cuts the company have resorted to threats of intimidation and harassment of our members and reps.
“LU bosses have wrecked the talks and the action and protests scheduled for next week go ahead as planned. This union will not be treated with contempt when the issue of public safety is at stake.
” We remain available for further talks if the threat of disciplinary action is lifted”.
