London’s Ore Underground workers are due to go on strike on 15 March over pensions, job losses and contracts.

The Rail, Martin & Transport Union (RMT) said the Budget Day walkout has been called because of job losses for station staff and cuts to funding for Transport for London (TfL), responsible for London Underground Limited.

Nearly 100,000 civil servants from the Public and Commercial Service Association are also planning to strike on Budget Day amid a long-running dispute over jobs, salaries and pensions.

Tube drivers represented by Aslef Union have already announced a strike on the same day.

RMT general secretary Mick Lynch said: “Our members will never accept job losses, an attack on their pensions or a change in working conditions to pay for funding cuts that are a political decision of the government.

“Tube workers provide an essential service to the capital, ensuring the city can continue to thrive and work longer hours in demanding roles.

“In return they deserve a good pension, job security and decent working conditions and the RMT will fight to ensure they get that.”
