Answered By: 
The Mayor

There is currently no evidence to suggest that the voluntary system of the London Living Wage makes strikes over pay more or less likely in London.  As stated previously, the voluntary system of the London Living Wage is an important aspect of the campaign and has not to date been challenged.
