Tube workers to stage 24-hour strike

Author: By Alan Jones, Press Association

The Rail Maritime and Transport union said its members on the Victoria Line
will walk out from 2130 hrs on Monday 5 October.

The union said new rosters had been imposed that significantly increased the
workload on staff.

The move, coupled with almost daily service disruption, had made life
“intolerable” for workers, claimed the union.

General secretary Bob Crow said: “The imposition of these new rosters is all
about management trying to carve up the staff working day to fit in with bad
decisions that they have made.

“This underhand attempt to extract an extra 20 per cent from the working day
out of our members has provoked this action on the Victoria Line and we
would urge the management side to re-open serious negotiations to resolve
this issue.”
