Tube staff threaten jubilee strike over bullying manager

LONDON UNDERGROUND workers at two stations are to strike on one of the jubilee bank holidays in a row over bullying.

Members of the RMT union at Euston and Green Park will walk out on June 3 unless their complaints are addressed.

RMT general secretary Mick Lynch said: “Staff at Euston and Green Park have suffered years of sustained bullying and intimidation by a manager who has created a toxic working environment.

“The union has tried in vain to reason with management, but they now will not let local representatives be part of a review into dismissals at the stations, instigated by the manager in question.

“Our strike on June 3 will cause significant disruption to people wishing to celebrate the Queen’s jubilee.

“However, if Tube bosses do the right thing and deal appropriately with the manager in question, we can find a just resolution to this dispute.”

A Transport for London spokesperson said: “We’re aware of this dispute and are carrying out an urgent review in a bid to resolve it.”
