£4.2 BILLION TO BE TAKEN OUT OF THE UNDERGROUND

[Description]

On Tuesday 10.12.13 there will be a meeting to discuss the TfL cuts, how they will affect the tube and how we can effectively oppose them.

Supporters of the campaign and citizens who are concerned about fares rising faster then pay rises, safety and security being compromised and our world famous tube no longer being well-staffed are all welcome to attend.

This is not an Occupy Event but Occupy supports it.

Once we look past the mayor of London’s “24-hour tube” smoke-screen, we can see that the closure of all ticket offices, and the loss of 950 operational jobs on London Underground will lead to:

less “customer facing staff” to assist the public

Less ticketing services available to the public (more calls to the oyster helpline)

Less jobs available for Londoners in a time of economic difficulty, which has an wide impact in society.

Local stations having virtually no staff

Staff being harder to locate

More safety related incidents

A worse experience for tourists

A massive impact on people with disabilities, older people and other groups in society

Longer queues

More unreported crime

A silent move away from the Oyster card system and a move toward “contactless payment cards”, where money comes directly out of your bank account and you must deal with your bank when there are issues to resolve. (The same banks who help caused the recession leading to these cuts)

This will be a great opportunity for those working or living in London to mobilise and defend out services, and discuss progressive solutions. There has been a lack if public consultation and the voice of the public must be heard!

Please forward this invitation to anybody who you feel may be interested
