"Tubeworker" says: it is not safe to work without fire cover

Submitted by martin on 27 October, 2002 - 1:52

The new issue of the Workers' Liberty Tubeworker bulletin, downloadable here, says that Tube workers should refuse to operate trains and stations during FBU strikes on grounds of safety.
The unions, RMT and ASLEF, have circulated leaflets informing workers about their rights to refuse to work in what they consider unsafe conditions, but Tubeworker is the only literature circulated to Underground workers making an outright call to refuse.

Tube workers look for more unity

By a Tube worker

London Underground workers, members of RMT and ASLEF, struck for 24 hours on 24-25 September in pursuit of our pay claim.

Picket lines on the morning of 25 September were strong and confident, and the strike effectively shut down almost the whole system.

Another 24 hour strike is due on 1-2 October, roughly coinciding with the local government unions' London weighting strike on 1 October. Further action is due to be discussed at the RMT's London Regional Council on Thursday 26 September.
