News from Keith Prince: Mayor’s ‘reckless’ TfL budget will bring many more tube strikes

09 January 2017

Commenting on the January 8-9th strike on the London Underground Assembly Member Keith Prince said:

Sadiq Khan’s ‘Zero Strikes’ election pledge has always been considered laughable, but the disruption caused by these upcoming strikes will be no joke.

His recklessly tight budget will most likely lead to many more strikes over his term.

How he thought he could keep his ‘Zero Strikes’ promise while cutting the TfL budget to shreds with his partial fares freeze is beyond me.

An independent review has supported the previous Mayor’s decision to close ticket offices and improve staff visibility, making these strikes entirely pointless.
