Underground strike forces bosses to negotiate

Issue No. 2162

A solid strike by thousands of RMT union members on London Underground over pay, job losses and bullying in June has forced bosses back to the negotiating table.

The RMT gave bosses until this week to make a reasonable offer to be discussed by a mass meeting of reps.

Many argue that the union will need to co-ordinate action with the Unite union members on the tube, who are currently balloting over pay.
