RMT campaigning secures 550 Tube cleaner jobs but union says fight goes on

TUBE UNION RMT today racked up an important victory in the fight for jobs and workplace justice for London Underground cleaners as the TFL contractors ABM were forced by a sustained campaign of union pressure to reinstate 550 posts into their headcount.

RMT has said that the victory shows that strong union pressure, backed by a cleaner workforce prepared to fight, can gain significant movement from private contractors on public contracts but warned that the fight for jobs and pay justice on the Tube will continue with the union pledging to leave no member behind.

RMT general secretary Mick Cash said:

 “I want to congratulate our cleaner members and their reps for the sustained campaign that has pushed ABM back on the jobs cuts programme but we know we still have a distance to go to achieve the objective of job security and workplace justice on the Tube. That fight continues.”
