London Underground has branded threatened strike action on the capital's tube network as 'pointless'. Power workers on London Underground are threatening eight days of strikes in a long-running row over conditions and other issues.
We have resolved a number of issues and have proposed a further reward package for staff in return for changes to the way our people work which will give us greater flexibility and staff availability when the network needs it most.It is disappointing that the Unite and RMT unions have rejected our proposal, and I urge them to continue with constructive discussions rather than threaten pointless industrial action. We are developing contingency plans to minimise the impact on the network should the strike action go ahead.
