Bakerloo News October 2021: We can defeat cuts

London Underground bosses are in the process of attacking our pensions and other terms and conditions. How do we know? Because they have told us. In 2018, the Tory government abolished TfL’s annual grant, making the system heavily reliant on fare revenue. Since that revenue necessarily disappeared due to the pandemic, LU has relied on government bailouts. These bailouts have come with strings, with the Tories demanding TfL/LU make drastic cuts and “reform” the staff pension scheme. We, key workers hailed as heroes for keeping an essential service running during the peak of the pandemic, will now be expected to make up our employer’s budgetary deficit with cuts to jobs and conditions.
