Leaked report a wake up call for anyone pushing to lift lock down

TUBE UNION RMT comment on warnings tube will be "rapidly overwhelmed" when lockdown is lifted ‎in a leaked document from the London Strategic Coordination Group.

General Secretary Mick Cash said;

"This leaked report is a wake up call for anyone pushing to lift the lockdown and get transport services jacked up in preparation. Any such moves are fraught with ‎lethal danger and once again it is transport workers right in the front line.

"RMT has made it clear from the start of the crisis that this trade union will agree to nothing that compromises the health, safety and livelihoods of our remembers. That remains our position.

"It would be gross negligence for the Government to loosen their own social distancing guidelines on the transport network. Our members are entitled to the same levels of protection as the wider public.

"RMT has issued clear guidance to our members that they have a right not to be forced to work in an unsafe environment and we are reiterating that guidance in the light of this leaked report."
