Early Day Motion: restore the operational subsidy for London Underground

Support the RMT campaign to restore the operational subsidy for London Underground

The London Underground is essential to our communities, economy and environment and all the staff who work on the Tube play a vital role in keeping the network running. Shockingly the Government has withdrawn operational subsidy for Transport for London meaning that London Underground is the only Metro of its kind in the world that does not receive such subsidy.

Blog: Staff Our Stations

It has been a month since the station grades conference and the launch of “Staff our Stations”. The launch of this initiative has a truly national feel with national implications that will affect people up and down the land. This is also an initiative that has gathered momentum locally. TFL have already requested a FOI (Freedom of Information) to the gather the statistics on the amount of time that stations are left derelict of staff and this equates to approx 5 hours each day for every day of the year.

Tube stations left unstaffed for 7,500 hours in 2018

The RMT has submitted a Freedom of Information request that has revealed that stations were left unstaffed on at least 863 occasions last year, totalling 7490 hours.

This comes in spite of London Underground's promise following the much hated 'Fit for the Future' job cuts plan that all stations would be staffed during traffic hours.
