Members ‘justifiably furious at the complete misrepresentation of our position in the public domain. It is having an incendiary effect’
The leader of the RMT union has slammed London mayor Sadiq Khan for falsely telling the public that RMT members in dispute with Transport for London (TfL) had ‘refused to attend talks’ aimed at resolving the dispute.
Mick Lynch accused Khan of inflaming the situation by his ‘complete misrepresentation of our position in the public domain’ via a tweet this morning – as good as warning Khan that if talks fail his actions are to blame, while reminding him that the union and its members remain and always have been prepared to engage in talks:
Lynch has now put the responsibility squarely on Khan’s shoulders to resolve the dispute before further action as ‘this situation degenerates further’.
Does Khan have what it takes to put right his mistake and fix the consequences?
