London Underground - ACAS talks ground to a halt and the strike is on

3 February 2014

After nearly 2 weeks in ACAS the talks have finally ended with no resolution, leaving TSSA no option but to proceed with the industrial action commencing at 2100hrs tomorrow on the Underground


This is a sad state of affairs (and not one of TSSA’s making) but our legitimate proposals to protect our members, the safety of passengers, and the first class service offered to customers have fallen on deaf ears in talks at ACAS! The company have offered virtually no concessions, and with little but empty words on any movement in stopping their draconian job cuts programme, and they have spent 2 weeks with a repeat button on how they need to CUT CUT CUT in the name of technology.

It is now over to our members to ensure we make this industrial action as strong as possible, to ensure the company get back round the table and stop playing lip service to our representations

Industrial action details:
