The union calling the string the RMT said talks with their bosses to avert the strike has broken down so the strike is going ahead. Other union involved in the strike action includes Transport Salaried Staffs Association (TSSA). The apart from the strike called for tomorrow, the union has staged three strikes in recent months, the point of contention between the union and their bosses is the potential lost of 800 jobs in the ticket offices and underground station.

Transport for London (TfL) accused the unions of scuppering the talks aimed at resolving the dispute. RMT spokes person, its general secretary Bob Crow said the job cuts proposed by TFL could put passenger’s safty at risk because the level of staff presence on platforms TFL proposed would turn tube stations into “into a muggers’ and vandals’ paradise”. Bob Crow added “It is incredible that LU management would not agree to a 12-week suspension of the cuts to allow a thorough safety evaluation on the impact on each station of their cuts plans.
