LU 'keen to avoid further strike negotiations'

London Underground wants to avoid having to deal with more bouts of industrial action.

09 December 2010

London Underground (LU) does not want to have to enter more rounds of strike negotiations with the Rail and Maritime Transport (RMT) union, it has been claimed.

In recent weeks the organisation has had to deal with a number of walkouts and has now asked RMT to end more threats, which it described as "pointless", the Press Association reports.

This comes after industrial action in support of two tube employees was rejected, leading chief operating officer of LU Howard Collins to describe the union as "completely irresponsible".

"They should end these pointless strike threats, which do nothing but cause problems for Londoners and lose their members a day's pay," he added.

General secretary of the RMT Bob Crow stated the body has a range of options that it can call upon when defending its members and these will be considered by its executive.

Last week, it was reported that journalists working for Newsquest could be set to take part in industrial action at offices across the country in a row over pay freezes and job cuts.
