Mick Lynch – 2022 Comments on Strikes on the Tube and Overground

The comments made by Mick Lynch, the General Secretary of the RMT, on 18 August 2022.

Tube bosses are having secret negotiations with the government about slashing jobs and undermining working conditions and pensions all in the name of removing subsidies.

This government-led assault on staff will be disastrous as no other comparable urban transport system in the world operates without financial support from central government to ensure good and reliable services.

The government needs to stop trying to get services on the cheap by slashing jobs and wages and invest in what should be a world class transport network.
