RMT demands 'assurances' from London Midland in strike negotiations

London Midland has been called on to provide assurances in regard to redundancies.

26 May 2011

The Rail, Maritime and Transport Workers union (RMT) has issued a demand for urgent assurances from London Midland in regard to redundancies.

In a move that could prompt union bargaining from the rail provider, Bob Crow, general secretary for the organisation, warned about the possibility of strike action to combat plans to drastically reduce opening hours at its offices.

"We will not tolerate the company's total disregard for agreed procedures and if we are forced to ballot for action to defend our members we will have no hesitation in making that recommendation," he warned.

Mr Crow also railed against plans to close nine ticket offices, stating that these - combined with the reduced opening times - would turn stations into a "paradise" for muggers and vandals.

Earlier in the week, RMT rejected the latest pay offer put forward by London Underground as part of ongoing strike negotiations that are taking place between the pair.
