Solidarity with the London Tube strikers

November 29, 2010

In the spirit of solidarity that we unite and support each other, we should also include the London Tube strikers.

London underground is not very accessible anyway but would be even less accessible for Disabled people if there were less staff to support them!

Read the message from a previous post from Lianna Etkind, Campaigns and Outreach Co-ordinator of Transport for All:

Accessible transport has been another of the casualties of the cuts. London Underground is threatening to cut 800 gateline and ticket office staff from the Tube network.

An adequately staffed tube is crucial to ensuring older and disabled people can travel safely. Transport for All, through our Transport Advocacy line, is already hearing of disabled people arriving at stations to find no staff members are there to offer assistance. Some have even been left stranded on a train or by a step.
