Transport for London Cuts Protest at Greater London Assembly

From RMT General Secretary Bob Crow

Dear Colleagues,

Transport for London cuts –

Protest at Greater London Assembly at 9am on Wednesday 17 July
Transport for London is planning hundreds of job losses and extensive changes to contracts affecting workers on the Tube and on London Overground.

The details are currently unclear but as we know, TfL have already announced their intention to introduce Driver Only Operation throughout the whole LOROL network. Cuts are unacceptable, and we are pressing for TfL to halt its plans and to engage with us now.

The fact that transport spending is being shrunk by 12.5% on budgetary grounds is absurd given the importance of an efficient transport network to London and therefore the UK economy. And the unfairness of the latest austerity drive is clear given the recent announcement of massive bonuses for TfL directors.

There will be a protest outside the Greater London Assembly (GLA) on 9am at Wednesday 17 July. Members and activists are asked to attend the GLA building (near Tower Bridge) to lobby members in advance of the Mayor of London’s monthly question time at 10:30am.
