Unite backing Heathrow Expansion

29-01-2009 19:46

Unite the union claim, Heathrow expansion is not detrimental to the environment. They claim the challenge is to expand without additional greenhouse gas emissions. Unite state that by placing an environmental cap on flights into Heathrow it forces the industry to invest in cleaner and quieter aircraft, the benefits of which go beyond UK airspace. They also say that the Heathrow expansion during Phase I of development means reducing stacking and queuing on the runways which could save an estimated 330,000 tonnes of CO2.

Metronet HQ occupied in London

29-01-2009 16:20

The RMT come to Metronet.
Metronet you may remember had to be bailed out by the government in 2007 when it very nearly went bust due. The obvious thing to do was to nationalise it. But back in those heady days Metronet was the flag bearer of Mr Brown's Public Private Partnership (PPP) scheme. So that would have seemed like admitting failure. So to this day Metronet is responsible for vast parts of the running of London Underground. Which also includes subcontracting the cleaning out to the less than humane ISS company. See:

So on Wednesday the RMT returned to Metronet with plenty of mops and buckets in the hope that they might clean up their act by getting a contractor that does not pay people the minimum wage while grassing up its employees to the immigration services.
