Millions of passengers will face more disruption tomorrow (Monday 29th November) after tube unions RMT and TSSA both confirmed on Friday that talks with London Underground management collapsed.
The strike will start on Sunday evening and normal service will not resume until Tuesday 30 November.
London Underground say;
“We will run as many Tube services as we can but some lines may have a restricted service and some stations will be closed. It is not possible to say exactly what services we will be able to run and the situation may change throughout the day.”
RMT General Secretary Bob Crow said:
"It is incredible that LU management would not agree to a 12 week suspension of the cuts to allow a throrough safety evaluation on the impact on each station of their cuts plans. That shows complete and utter contempt for the safety of both their passengers and their staff. They have thrown back in our faces a chance to suspend the action and have collapsed the talks and as a result the strikes go ahead from Sunday evening.
"LU/TFL might want to gamble on tube safety but RMT and TSSA will not. We have exposed the hidden agenda of moving to unstaffed stations which would turn the tube into a muggers and vandals paradise and today we see that the management are prepared to bulldoze through their cuts plans regardless. RMT and TSSA will not sit back and allow that to happen. This strike is about safety and we will be taking that message to passengers as we build the campaign against the tube cuts."
