RMT smokes out tube chiefs – talks on dispute set for noon tomorrow

TUBE UNION RMT have confirmed that talks on the issues at the heart of the dispute on the tube will take place tomorrow – Friday 5th June – at 12 noon

RMT members at both London Undergound and TfL have voted to strike from 18.59 hrs next Tuesday – 9th June – in separate disputes on pay, job cuts and bullying.

This morning RMT issued a call for talks. The union has been contacted by the management side and the talks are scheduled for tomorrow at noon.

Bob Crow, RMT General Secretary, said:

“It’s taken a while, but RMT are pleased that our efforts to smoke out the London Mayor Boris Johnson and his senior managers have been successful and we can now get down to meaningful talks on the issues at the heart of this dispute.

“We hope that the Mayor, who was full of praise for his transport staff earlier this year when they struggled against the snow to try and keep London moving, will issue a clear mandate to his senior staff to lift the threat of pay cuts and compulsory redundancies and rebuild the industrial relations machinery on the tube.”

Bus worker union RMT welcomes the Government’s renewed focus on bus services, which have been in decline for many years, and are an essential public service for all of our communities. Since 2010, over 3000 bus services have been cut or withdrawn – and for many years, the number of bus passenger journeys has fallen, thus urgent action is needed to reverse these cuts and revive our bus networks.
