Answer for London Underground staff

Answered By: 
The Mayor

The attached file contains two tabs:

a)    the number of full time equivalent London Underground staff (broken down by role) in post for each standard TfL reporting period from P8/2015 to P1/2017 (12.10.2014 - 30.04.2016)

b)    the number of full time equivalent London Underground staff (broken down by role) in post for each standard TfL reporting period from P2/2017 to P9/2018 (01.05.2016 - 09.12.2017) 

Night Tube station staff have the same grade as day staff and therefore cannot be excluded from these figures.

While staff numbers fluctuate in all organisations, over 800 station staff left London Underground under the former Mayor's Fit for the Future programme from early 2016, with the majority leaving by July 2016. Following my request to London TravelWatch for an independent review of ticket office closures, TfL has responded with a number of steps to increase staff visibility at stations, including the gradual recruitment of 325 additional roles to London Underground stations. Also, at my request, TfL is taking several steps to simplify its management structure as part of a huge transformation programme.
