Stop Job Cuts

Thanks!

The company wants to show us its appreciation for how we have kept London moving during the pandemic. Bless.

Of course, it would be inappropriate for this reward to be financial, what with the current cash crisis. So management are running a survey asking us whether we would prefer a personal...

Unions rally against cuts

The main four unions organising across Transport for London - RMT, Aslef, TSSA, and Unite - held a joint rally against cuts, via Zoom, on 15 July.
