RMT 1 - LU 0: Or Is It?

The RMT are claiming victory over London Underground (LU) on the issue of job cuts that led to strikes earlier this summer. But is it really a victory? LU dispute Bob Crow's triumphant stance, saying they haven't actually provided any assurances that compulsory redundancies won't happen. It's not the first time that the RMT have partaken of a self-proclaimed victory lap for holding London's tube travellers to ransom. Perhaps someone should point out to Crow that there are no winners: any sympathies that Londoners may have had for striking union members have been eroded by the RMT's demand that their jobs be safeguarded during a recession while their customers face the dole queue.

and there you have it, Bob Crow, the self proclaimed king of spin and public misery where self satisfaction is paramount.
