The fight against ticket office closures should not be allowed to die. Even if we don't feel like we have the confidence to win on it right now, there is plenty that our unions could do to keep the issue live. Here are Tubeworker's suggestions:
We also need to look at organising in the "Visitor Information Centres" now in operation at stations like King's Cross St. Pancras and Victoria. Although they sell tickets, they are staffed by workers with significantly worse terms and conditions than LU SAMFs. Unions should demand that work be taken "in house" by LU and the workers paid the proper rate for the job.
LU are now consulting on closing the final 12 ticket offices on the Bakerloo & District lines
