Enfield tube cleaners to stage fresh walkout
London Underground cleaners in Oakwood are to stage a fresh strike in a continuing row over an Olympic bonus.
Members of the Rail, Maritime and Transport (RMT) union employed by contractors will walk out of Cockfosters London Underground Depot in Bramley Road for 48 hours from Thursday, following action around the opening weekend of the Games.
RMT general secretary Bob Crow said: “With the eyes of the world on the London Olympics, the many millions enjoying the events around the globe must not forget the London transport cleaners on minimum pay rates doing some of the dirtiest jobs in often appalling conditions with no Olympics recognition and reward whatsoever.
“It is these same staff who have played a key role in keeping services clean and safe who are now forced again by their employers to take action for a living wage and recognition of their Olympics efforts.”
