Whose Roundel?

Submitted by AWL on Wed, 01/21/2015 - 20:22

Tubeworker hears that London Underground has insisted that union activists stop using the roundel in campaigns. LU doesn't want "its" logo associated with campaigns for a safe, affordable and well-staffed service.

2014 saw the roundel represent an expensive service mostly paid for by passengers for the luxury of going to work to make their bosses rich. It’s an increasingly automated environment where customer service is replaced with machines, where around 850 jobs are threatened, where pay is being cut and conditions torn up.

We understand LU particularly objected to the "Solidarity" roundel (see below). Does it look offensive to you? We much prefer an image based on values of solidarity and public service than the corporate profiteering image LU want to convey!
