RMT on Mayors warning

15 December 2021

RMT Press Office:

RMT on Mayors warning tonight that TFL stands on the brink of financial meltdown.

General Secretary Mick Lynch said;

"The London Mayors warning tonight that there will have to be a managed decline of the tube and other transport services without a proper funding deal should be a wake up call for anyone who cares about the future of our capital city.

"This looming financial meltdown would mean a return to the dark days of a crime ridden tube network falling apart at the seams with increasing levels of pollution and transport poverty.

"Increasing the age of eligibility for free travel is effectively a pensioner’s tax for which the government will never be forgiven

"This is a shameful way to treat London and London’s key transport workers and this union stands ready to fight any cuts programme whatever direction it comes from."
