RMT and TFL set for strike negotiation talks

Rail Union vote in favour of strike action

07 June 2010

RMT and Transport for London (TfL) are set for strike negotiation talks following the rail union's vote in favour of industrial action.

Over 90 per cent of RMT members voted in favour of a walk-out over fears relating to potential job losses, poor pay and working conditions.

Many workers were critical of the public-private partnership between TfL and Tube Lines (TL) - a privately owned company brought in to oversee upgrade work on underground lines.

TfL is taking over the firm after TL failed to meet deadlines, but there are still lingering concerns that jobs will be cut if engineering work is cut back.

A TfL spokesman said: "We have tabled an acceptable pay offer and we remain committed to continuing our negotiations and avert strike action which would cause unnecessary disruption to the travelling public."

RMT will meet in the next few days to decide on whether vote for a full-strike or any other industrial strike.
