Unite Metronet reaction

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Nov. 6, 2007) -

Today administrators announced that TfL is the only bidder for Metronet's tube line contract.

In response Brian Harris, Unite Regional Officer for the tube, said:
"TfL taking over the running of the Metronet tube contract is great news for the former Metronet workers who have endured a long period of insecurity.

"Unite wants the transfer of ownership to happen as quickly as possible.

"Unite looks forward to working with TfL and London Underground Ltd to deliver a Tube system fit for London's needs."
