Tube strike negotiations end without agreement

Further walkouts could take place after talks end

23 September 2010

Strike negotiations between London Underground (LU) and union officials have broken down, it has been revealed.

The Transport Salaried Staffs Association (TSSA) and the Rail Maritime and Transport union (RMT) both claim discussions over proposed job cuts have not progressed.

The Press Association reports that the TSSA believes another 24-hour strike is likely to take place on October 3rd, with further industrial action planned for November.

Manuel Cortes, TSSA deputy leader, said: "We have had a day of hard bargaining but as things stand tonight [22nd September], the next strike is still on.

"We hope to hear something positive from LU by Friday - the ball is now firmly in their court."

The unions are concerned that the loss of 800 ticket station staff will make underground travel unsafe.

However, LU officials claim recent talks have not involved safety issues, while also reaffirming the fact that all stations will continue to be staffed at all times.
