Mayor 'not serious' about a negotiating a Tube settlement

This latest statement from the mayor's team proves what we have been saying all week at Acas - he is not serious about a negotiating a sensible settlement to ensure the safety and security of the Tube in the future.

Instead of talking about an army of volunteers to beat the strike, he should be sitting down with us to reach a deal by next Tuesday which would allow us to call off the action.

– Manual Cortes, leader of the TSSA

Unions 'must work with Tube bosses' to help shape future

We're committed to implement these changes without compulsory redundancies and there'll be a job for everyone at LU who wants to work for us and be flexible.

I urge the leaderships of the RMT and TSSA to work with us to help shape the future of the Tube, rather than threatening Londoners with unnecessary disruption.

All a strike will achieve is lose those who take part four days' pay. Should the strike go ahead, we'll do all we can to keep our customers informed and ensure we keep London moving and open for business.

– Mike Brown, Managing Director of London Underground

Passengers have been warned to expect disruption to their journeys because of two 48-hour strikes by London Underground workers over the closure of Tube ticket offices. Today Tube bosses announced the following contingencies:

  • LU to run as many services as possible, but there will be disruption and customers are urged to check before they travel at tfl.gov.uk
  • Extra bus and river services to help Londoners get around, although networks are likely to be busy
  • Licensed and trained TfL Ambassadors will help to keep Tube stations open and provide travel information and advice to customers
  • LU reaffirms commitment that all Tube stations will remain staffed and controlled while services are running, with more staff visible and available to help customers in ticket halls and on platforms
