RMT General Secretary Bob Crow on LU planting a time capsule this morning to be opened in 2063.

Bob Crow said

"The underground has a proud and successful history over its 150 years delivered by generations of staff committed to providing this brilliant public service and it is right that we celebrate that again this morning. 

"However, RMT does not want to see important elements like safety, ticket offices and proper staffing levels consigned to a time capsule to be opened in fifty years time as some sort of historical artefact. 

"RMT's ballot for action in the current dispute over protecting safe staffing levels and services concludes this week as we continue the fight for a safe and sustainable future for the underground which will take London beyond the next 50 years."
