Tamil Solidarity Supports RMT Strike

A second two-day strike began last night of RMT members on London’s tubes, bringing the underground system largely to a halt.

After eight weeks of negotiations following the first strike, London Underground management was still saying that every ticket office will close by the end of 2015.

They plan to cut nearly 1,800 frontline staff and create 900 new managers. As well as safety on the tube being jeopardised, many staff face being downgraded and having pay cuts.

Striking RMT members got a very good response from the public. Lots of people said they don’t want the ticket offices closed and they are worried about safety on the stations with less staff.
