London Transport Museum campaign gathers speed

6 November 2012

TSSA recently called a demonstration outside the London Transport Museum’s Covent Garden entrance to protest at management threats to cut staff, slash the salaries of the lowest paid workers and increase entrance fees.

Members at the museum were joined by the PCS union, journalists, members of the public and Lost Arts – the trade union alliance against cuts to cultural funding.

Earlier in the day TSSA members, Lost Arts and the Campaign for Better Transport had lobbied a meeting of the Museum’s trustees, asking them to preserve its future as an affordable, accessible resource celebrating London’s rich transport history.

The future of the museum is under threat due to the loss of £1 million from the Arts Council and TfL’s decision to cut their funding to the museum by 25 per cent. In response, TSSA has launched a campaign to Save London ransport Museum, which has so far received much public support. The next stage of the campaign is to call on TSSA members and our supporters to lobby their MPs in support of the museum. You can do this very quickly using the model letter and email tool on the TSSA website at www.tssa.org.uk/ltmuseum. You can also show your support and find out more at the campaign Facebook page: www.facebook.com/ savelondontransportmuseum
