Dagenham stations may be left unmanned, union fears
DAGENHAM’S Tube station could be left unmanned for part of the day from next month, union chiefs claim.
The RMT said around a third of Underground stations may be left without staff taking breaks for up to 90 minutes, as Transport for London (TfL) presses ahead with plans to axe 800 jobs across London.
But TFL accused the union of “scaremongering” and said stations would only be without staff for short breaks if employees were sick or deployed to other stations.
Stations which could be affected include Becontree and Dagenham Heathway on the District Line.
A TfL spokeswoman said: “We have been absolutely clear, and reiterate again, that the changes proposed will continue to see all London Underground stations staffed.

“The changes also come with a guarantee of no compulsory redundancies.
“The RMT should end their scaremongering.”
