London tube strike negotiations set to resume
Further industrial action is planned by tube staff later this month.
Strike negotiations are set to resume between London Underground (LU) and the RMT and TSSA unions next week in a bid to prevent further walkouts.
This autumn has already seen three 24-hour strikes take place, with further industrial action set for November 28th, the Docklands24 reports.
Unrest has already mounted this week after a leaked Transport for London (TfL) document suggested some tube stations are already being left unstaffed as a result of job cuts.
"The mayor has promised that there will be no unstaffed stations, but his officials say not only that there will but that there already are," said RMT general secretary Bob Crow.
He added that with further strikes set to take place next week, LU and TfL should pull back from plans to reduce staffing levels that would have a drastic impact on tube services and safety.
It recently emerged that workers at a Heinz factory in Wigan were being balloted over whether or not that should strike over proposed wage increases.
