LU 'wants to hold strike negotiations with union leaders'

In order to bring an end to industrial action, London Underground wants to continue talks with union representatives.

29 November 2010

London Underground (LU) is prepared to continue strike negotiations with union leaders representing tube staff in a bid to put an end to the "pointless" industrial action.

Managing director of LU Mike Brown said his organisation has been in consultations with representatives of its employees for over six months in an attempt to understand their safety concerns.

He stated that the body offered a six-week period to discuss the plans and see if there are any local issues to be addressed and will meet straight away to talk about any genuine safety issues leaders of unions have.

"If they are serious about resolving this issue, they should immediately call off their totally unnecessary strike, which will achieve nothing whatsoever," he added.

Mr Brown was speaking after another wave of industrial action caused disruption to tube services in London today (November 29th) following a walkout by staff at 18:30 GMT yesterday.

Last week, leader of the Transport Salaried Staffs' Association Gerry Doherty noted the unions had tabled a proposal that sought to address the effects of cuts on passengers.
