RMT warns again on tube cuts as another signal failure hits District and Circle Lines

Mick Cash, General Secretary, said

"This week we have seen a spate of breakdowns and failures on rail and tube which have shone a light on the fact that our transport services are constantly running on the edge due to years of staffing and maintenance cuts. As the winter rolls on we can expect the situation to worsen if the cuts aren't reversed and reversed swiftly.

"Passengers paying through the nose to travel on overcrowded and failing services are right to be angry but they should target that anger at the politicians and the operators, not at our members who are working in impossible conditions. "
