Emergency resolution: Stations Job Cuts

The following resolution, submitted by Stratford no.1 branch and seconded by Hammersmith & City branch, was carried unanimously by the March meeting of the Regional Council.

This Regional Council deplores TfL's announcement of 700-800 stations jobs. We reaffirm RMT's determination to fight all job cuts, and resolve to step up implementation of the campaign plan that we passed late last year.

We resolve to run a high-profile public campaign against these job cuts, as well as fighting them through industrial action.

We reject the assertion that London Underground has to cut jobs because of the economic crisis: governments should tackle recession by creating public service jobs not cutting them.

We resolve to have a banner made bearing our 'SOS: Staff Our Stations' campaign logo.
