Tube Warning As Sex Offences Up 35%

RMT slams Mayor for ignoring union warnings as TFL confirms today that sex offences have risen by 35% in a year
General Secretary Mick Cash said.

"RMT warned right from the off that cash led cuts to station staffing would turn London Underground into a criminals paradise and those who ignored those warnings, and in particular Mayor Boris Johnson, should be hanging their heads in shame today, apologising to Londoners and reversing their lethal cuts programme.

"RMT'S dispute and campaign on this core issue of tube job cuts is very much back up the agenda and runs in parallel with our fight over tube pay and the ill-conceived night running plans which would no doubt escalate the surge in violence and abuse against staff and passengers alike. "
