RMT pledges all-out fight to protect pensions as Government line up savage cuts in TFL funding deal

London's main transport union‎ RMT pledges all-out fight to protect jobs, pensions and working conditions as Government line up savage cuts in TFL funding deal as details emerge this morning. 

General Secretary Mick Cash said;

"It is appalling that the Government are targeting staff pensions amongst a range of other savage measures in this short-term funding deal. I put them on notice that any attempt to hack away at our members pension rights will be met by an all-out campaign of political and industrial resistance.

"These are difficult times for the staff who have kept London moving since the COVID pandemic and it is a disgrace that they are now being set up for a battering in these cuts measures. The TFL staff are essential workers who have performed heroically and RMT will fight off any  attempt to hack back on jobs, pay, pensions and working conditions‎."
