Last week’s two-day strike, and the threat of a further three-day strike, by the RMT, has forced London Underground into a number of concessions. They will now enter discussions to ensure that no Tube worker will face a pay cut due to the restructure. They have also re-committed to a station-by-station review of ticket office closures and, at last, agreed to a timescale and framework for this. As a consequence, the strike due to begin this evening (Monday 5 May) has been suspended.

HOLT will be using the period of the review, which runs until 23 May, to organise demonstrations and other actions to highlight the need for ticket offices and well-staffed stations. Can you organise a demonstration, photo-call, leafleting session, or other action at your local station? Let us know.
