TSSA joins August 5 Tube strike

15 July 2015

The TSSA will join the August 5 Tube strike after peace talks stalled at ACAS.

General Secretary Manuel Cortes accused LU management of "acting in bad faith" after inviting the unions to open ended talks at the conciliation service.

"We were expecting to agree a framework to discuss all our concerns over staffing levels and safety at the Night Tube as well as the pay issues.

"But all we got was a repeat of the "take or leave" final pay offer which has already been rejected and no detailed talks on the Night Tube.

"LU seem to be treating ACAS as part of its PR spin that the unions are refusing to negotiate to end this dispute. That is the complete opposite of the truth. We are willing to negotiate, they clearly are not."
