Scared tube workers fear tube not safe

20 October 2016

Following the controlled explosion of a suspicious package on the Jubilee Line, TSSA General Secretary Manuel Cortes said:

"I'd like to pay tribute to all our tube workers who were at the forefront of today's evacuation of the Jubilee Line tube and station at Greenwich North.
"However, in light of very serious concerns raised about security by our members following today's alarming events, we are urgently pressing for an emergency and immediate security summit with London Underground, British Transport Police, Scotland Yard and City Hall.
"Our members are telling us that they are scared and that the company is giving them scant reassurance. The network should be shut until we are given assurances that it's made as safe as possible for them and for passengers. "
