Tube workers' strike shuts Piccadilly Line
Tube workers operating the busy Piccadilly Line shut it down for 24 hours on 23/24 March in their strike against "bullying, harassment and intimidation". The RMT transport union has condemned management for refusing to address serious issues at the heart of the dispute.
RMT and Socialist Party member Paul received this text message from his union rep: "Congratulations for your support of our strike today. This gives your reps a very strong hand to now press for further meaningful talks with management knowing that the members are 100% behind the issues... The other two strikes in April are still on and will remain so unless management negotiate seriously. Our unity is our strength. Stay united!"
