Naturally Bob Crow disputes this and said "We know very well the disruption that the action will cause but we will not sit back while managers play fast and loose with train safety and while our members and activists are subjected to intimidation, bullying and victimisation.
"There can be no excuse for the failure to install Correct Door Side Enabling Equipment. It is operational on all other sections of the Underground and this dangerous penny-pinching on the Victoria Line puts both our members and the general public at risk. We've got no option but to strike to force this issue up the agenda and we expect the travelling public will understand that it's better to face up to another day of disruption than to wait for the first fatality."
As this is the second dispute, it'll be interesting to see which side will eventually give way on this & Victoria Line commuters might find more strikes on the way.
Also don't forget the RMT is currently re-balloting nearly 10,000 members across London Underground and Transport for London for industrial action over separate disputes around jobs, pay & breaches of disciplinary and attendance agreements. Those ballots close on the 28th of May.
