RMT outraged as TFL sticks automatic currency machine in front of 7/7 memorial at Kings Cross.
TUBE UNION RMT today demanded immediate action from TFL to remove an automatic currency machine from directly in front of the memorial to victims of the 7/7 bombings at Kings Cross station. (picture attached).
Tube staff are furious that the memory of those who died and were injured, and the personal risks that tube staff themselves took in the rescue operation, is being tarnished in such a disgraceful and cynical fashion.
RMT members at the station have today launched a petition demanding the immediate removal of the machine.
General Secretary Mick Cash said;
"RMT members are furious that this cash machine has been jammed right in front of the Kings Cross 7/7 memorial and we want it removed and removed right now.
"It's hard to imagine the thinking behind this disgraceful move which shows a cavalier disregard to the memories of those who were killed and injured and those who risked their own lives in the rescue operation.
"Those responsible should be ashamed of themselves and should waste no time in taking swift and decisive action to remove the machine."
