London tube dispute: staff refuse to collect fares

Strike support: Travel free

#FreeTube! Support unions’ revenue action

As part of their industrial campaign to stop cuts and job losses, members of London's Tube unions RMT and TSSA working on stations will take “revenue action”. This means that station staff will refuse to carry out “revenue duties”, including selling and checking tickets. Ticket office windows will be closed and ticket machines will be powered down. Revenue Inspectors will not conduct checks and issue penalty fares, and, except in cases where crowd control means it’s unsafe to do so, ticket gates will be kept open. In other words… free travel!  4 Feb 2014
