Rail unions threaten New Year action on London Underground

Rail unions are threatening
industrial action on the London Underground if disputes over pay, conditions
and job losses remain unresolved.

The RMT and Aslef unions said members may be
asked to walkout on one of the busiest nights of the year unless progress is
made.

London Underground is
reportedly planning to cut 800 jobs in a move to a 35-hour week.

RMT regional organiser Bobby
Law said: "We are not accepting any job cuts. If there is no agreement, we
would take action on New Year’s Eve. The Tube will not be running and there
will be no party."

Aslef is threatening to strike unless a dispute over
night-shift rates is settled.
