Great video about the fight against London Underground ticket office closures

A really good film here from Reel News about the threats to ticket offices and staff:

The closure of all ticket offices is just the start.

By 2021, LUL bosses want a fully automated underground system including driverless trains, no-one on the stations to help passengers or to deal with emergencies, and a stripped down flexible workforce on zero hours contracts with no holiday or sick pay.

London Underground workers have voted to go on strike over plans to close tube ticket offices. The first 48 hour strike against these dangerous and unworkable plans starts 12 noon on February 4.

Come to the picket lines and show your support.
