Former Metronet Cuts

Key media commentators are now accepting RMT’s calculation that the total financial black hole facing TfL/LUL is pushing £5 billion with 3000 jobs at risk. This week we exposed £60 million of maintenance cuts on former Metronet lines. We achieved widespread coverage for our case that these cuts are the tip of the iceberg with far worse to come if we don’t stand up and fight.

It’s this financial crisis which is driving the industrial relations strategy at TfL and LUL and which goes right to the heart of the current disputes with the employers.
