Industrial action

When negotiations fail, RMT members take action

Video: Night Tube strike update

On the eve of the first of several proposed Night Tube strikes, Regional Organiser John Leach updates members.

In the video, John explains: "After 6 months of trying to explain and persuade London Underground management that you cannot abolish 200 positions, rip up an agreement that protects our members work life balance, and their right to not have to do these {Night Tube} duties if they can't, we have to stand up and be counted."
