RMT on serious impact on tube services this morning from latest spate of signal failures and train breakdowns.
General Secretary Mick Cash said.
"This mornings latest spate of signal failures and train breakdowns on the tube should force the mayor and his officials to back off from their programme of cuts to staffing and maintenance schedules.
"Maintenance programmes have been ripped up and rewritten on the hoof to fit budget targets and this morning, yet again, it's the travelling public left paying a heavy price. Boris Johnson needs to stop and reverse his tube cuts plans or risk plunging London into daily chaos. "
