RMT activists, members of other unions, and local community campaigners assembled at Shepherd’s Bush Tube station tonight (Thursday 8 January) to leaflet and petition passengers against ticket office closures and staffing cuts.
Also joining the protest were local Labour MP Andy Slaughter, local Labour GLA member Murad Qureshi, and RMT Executive member for the London Transport Region John Reid.
Hundreds of leaflets were distributed and signatures collected, with campaigners encountering strong local opposition to the closure and cuts.
The action was called by Hands Off London Transport in conjunction with RMT Central Line West branch. HOLT next plans actions at Leytonstone on Monday 12 January, in conjunction with RMT Central Line East branch (click here for more), and at Ladbroke Grove on Monday 19 January, in conjunction with RMT Hammersmirth & City Line branch.
