It’s the ongoing saga that’ll make the difference between the tubes running smoothly during the Olympics and massive delays but according to reports today the tube unions have ended discussions with London Underground.
The RMT have left discussions with London Underground over an offer of £850 bonus to those who are due to work on the tubes during this Summer’s Olympic Games. The RMT along with three other unions have been locked in talks with London Underground recently trying to hammer out the deal however according to reports RMT have walked out over increased demands being asked of tube workers.
Despite the fact each tube worker has been offered an extra £850 for working during the Games demands such as a clause that asks workers for ‘total flexibility’ and customer satisfaction scores which will determine if the workers are paid the full amount or not.
If no agreement is met many lines carrying London commuters and visitors to the Games could face strikes and disruption adding to the travel misery already expected to hit once the Olympics begin.
