Hot on the heels of George Osborne announcing a 12.5% cut in Transport for London's funding, TfL franchisee London Overground has revealed that it is to scrap conductors.
In fact, the company send a courier to deliver letters to conductors telling them that their jobs are to go. Thanks very much.
We need to fight this - and the conductors deserve the support of workers across TfL. Don't be tempted to think that because guards are long gone on the Underground, others should share our fate. Quite the opposite - we should learn from our failure to save Tube guards, and put every effort into saving them on the Overground.
