In response to today’s announcement of Boxing Day strikes being avoided as tube bosses agree to a £350 bonus for tube drivers, Conservative London Assembly Member Richard Tracey said:

“TfL should not be in a position where they feel they have no choice but to pay a bung of £280K of fare payer and taxpayer money in order to stop union bosses holding London to ransom on one of the busiest shopping days of the year. Since when has a £46K starting salary and 43 days of holiday a year not been enough for tube drivers? This proves that even when strike action does not go ahead, the threat is often used by union bosses to make Londoners suffer. The Government needs to urgently ban tube strikes and replace them with an independent mediation process which protects workers’ rights.”
