Union says it will continue to keep the pressure on the mayor and LUL to put customers first

Tube trainRMT activists and community groups are this afternoon taking the fight against the closure of Tube ticket offices to the public with a demo and petition signing outside Shepherd’s Bush Central Line station.

Shepherd’s Bush is one of the first stations to have its ticket office to be closed and it is in line to be turned into a Tesco’s, depriving the local people and shoppers at Westfield of a vital ticket office facility that is still heavily in use and still supported by the public *

RMT general Secretary Mick Cash said: “The fight against LUL ticket office closures goes on and is widely supported by the public. Its ludicrous that one of the first to close is Shepherd’s Bush, which was totally redeveloped to sit along side the new Westfield shopping centre and re-generation of the Shepherds Bush area and has seen a massive increase in passengers using the station and the ticket office as a result.

RMT will continue to oppose the ridiculous plan for ticket office closures and will continue to keep the pressure on the mayor and LUL to put customers first.”
