Ditched £16m Tube project left stations unstaffed

Tube union RMT reveals £16 million cost of botched project which has left dozens of stations dangerous and unstaffed

Tube union RMT today revealed through an FOI request the astronomical waste of nearly £16 million on a system meant to enhance staff rostering but which has left dozens of LU stations dangerous and ‎unstaffed.

Why all tube workers should be in the RMT

The last two decades has seen enormous attacks on the pay, conditions and pensions of millions of workers. Pay freezes in the name of 'austerity', pension raids and terrible contracts have been the norm in many industries. Yet on the Tube we moved from a 40h week, via a 37.5h week to the present 35h week which, with banked hours gives us 52 days annual leave. Nearly every one of our annual pay rises in the last 20 years has been significantly above inflation and none below.
