London Day Of Action Against Tube Cuts Solidly Supported By Passengers

A day of action against tube cuts on Friday (27th March) was solidly supported by passengers and Londoners, with thousands of leaflets distributed from stations across London. RMT and campaign group Hands Off London Transport, jointly organised the day which was joined by dozens of reps and activists from the RMT union, HOLT group and supporters.

Bermondsey Station: RMT & HOLT Demo Against Cuts

Mayor Boris Johnson and tube bosses plan to close the ticket office at Bermondsey station and cut frontline staff. This is a busy station with a vital ticket office which serves both local residents and those coming into the area to work, It also provides vital information and assistance to elderly and disabled passengers helping them to use London Underground.

Planned Ticket Office Closure Date - 29th March

Staff cuts planned locally including Bermondsey - 30%

We are protesting and taking action to stop the cuts from happening.

Gants Hill Station, Hands Off London Transport Event

Central Line East Branch will be holding a Hands Off London Transport event on Friday 27th March at 16.00 hrs at Gants Hill station. This is in protest of the impending closure of the stations ticket office due in July. We will be handing out leaflets to the public any help would be appreciated. Please also pass the details on to anybody who may wish to support this.

As part of the on-going campaign against ticket office closures and staffing cuts on London Underground, HOLT - Hands Off London Transport and Tube workers' union RMT are organising a London-wide day of action.

RMT & HOLT Day Of Action Against Tube Cuts

As part of the ongoing campaign against ticket office closures and staffing cuts on London Underground, HOLT - Hands Off London Transport and Tube workers' union RMT are organising a London-wide day of action.

We believe cuts and closures will make the Tube less accessible and safe for passengers, particularly disabled passengers and those with English as a second language, as well as more dangerous and stressful for staff.

We demand properly staffed stations with open ticket offices.
