Strike ballot opens this week in RMT fight over Tube cuts as union moves onto a war footing

TUBE UNION RMT confirmed today that an industrial action ballot will open this week in the fight against cuts plans being smuggled in across London Underground under the cloak of the “Transformation Programme”.

The ballot will kick off on Wednesday.  Nearly 2000 staff will be involved covering engineering, signals, electrical, track and control centre staff and will include the Emergency Response unit. The ballot will close on the 16th July.

All members affected by Transformation to be balloted

Subject: TFL TRANSFORMATION

That we note the report from our Lead Officer, the imposition from the company and the grave situation facing our members with the company riding roughshod over agreements and legal requirements.

We instruct the General Secretary to immediately ballot all affected members in London Underground including ex-Tube Lines members for Strike Action.

All affected members to be advised by email & text.

Affected branches & the London Transport Regional Council to be advised.
